The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction

NEW - Data Protection Update - GDPR
A new Data Protection Bill ("DPB") in the UK will enact the General Data Protection Regulations with effect from 25 May 2018. The Information Commissioners Office, responsible to regulating data use in the UK, has stated that the introduction of the new legislation is “the biggest change to data protection law for a generation".
They have advised that their primary focus will be safeguarding customer and client data, and most organisations have good grounds for requesting, retaining and processing employee data. However, this does not exempt GP practices from having to comply. In addition to the financial risks of the practice not complying with data protection law, individuals will also have greater rights to challenge the organisation’s use of their data, which could lead to costly legal action.
