Text Messaging Service
We have a NHS text messaging service which allows the Practice to send out appointment and other reminders and gives you an option to cancel by reply. Please inform the Practice if you change your mobile number so that we can ensure our records are kept up to date. If not, the Practice cannot be held responsible for messages sent to or received by the wrong person.
The practice number will appear as - +447800008339
Registering with the practice
Our books are currently open but full with a capped list (except for households of existing patients). We are a very busy practice and do not have the resources to safely look after more patients.
On the first Tuesday of every month we run a search to see how many spaces we have. If we do have any spaces available, then at 2pm at St Saviours Road we will offer those spaces on a first-come-first-serve basis. The numbers are normally very limited and are calculated as one space per person and not per family.
We do appreciate how frustrating it must be for you when you are trying to register with us and are unable to; and for this we sincerely apologise. We wish we could accept everyone, but we hope that you understand that this would not be safe to do so and we have to have a limit to ensure patient safety.

How we work
In order to enhance continuity of patient care we operate a ‘personal-doctor' registration system.
You (including children) will be allocated a named, accountable GP whom you will see for most non-urgent appointments.
If, on registration, you prefer to choose a specific doctor please inform the reception staff who will endeavour to accommodate your request depending on the availability of spaces on that doctor's list.
When you register you will be asked to complete the following forms:
Once you have completed your forms we will make you an appointment with either your new GP or the practice nurse for a health check.
