Patient Participation Group
A patient group meets regularly and organises meetings in support of the practice. For more information please contact the practice manager.
A fee will be charged for services not provided by the NHS. These include insurance
reports, some vaccinations, private certificates, examinations for fitness for
driving and other types of examination.
We use the 'Choose and Book' system for most of your referrals to hospital.
Patients will be given a booking number and a password to ring the hospital appointment
booking centre. They will be able to choose from the available appointment times.
Alternatively, arrangements can be made during your consultation.
When we refer patients to other services, the referral is administered by the
local NHS in a referral management centre. The referral management centre is
responsible for allocating your referral to other services and normally sees
full information about the referral, including any confidential information.
If we are referring you to other services and you feel there is information you
wish to withhold from the referral management centre please inform us as soon
If you experience problems with the referral management centre or wish to discuss
its role further please contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS)
on 0845 650 0303.
