This information along with your postcode and NHS number but not your name, are sent to a secure system where it can be linked with other health information.
This allows those planning NHS services or carrying out medical research to use information from different parts of the NHS in a way which does not identify you.
You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything.
If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff or ask at reception for a copy of the leaflet “How information
about you helps us to provide better care. An information leaflet regarding this can be dounloaded by clicking here.

Saturday Morning Surgeries
ideal for those who cannot attend during the week
The surgery opens for routine doctor appointments on Saturday mornings. Although we are not allowed to make this an exclusively 'commuter surgery', we do encourage those who can attend at other times to make use of mid-week appoirtments. Thank you.
Appointments are available by pre-booking and other services provided by reception, secretarial and nursing staff are unfortunately not be available – i.e. no nurse appointments, repeat prescriptions or general enquiries eg regarding results, referrals.
Urgent appointments on Saturdays are provided by the out-of-hours service EMDOC as usual. Please do not come to the surgery without an appointment and expect to be seen.
