What is GDPR?

GDPR is a new law that determines how your personal data is processed, kept safe and the legal rights that you have in relation to your own data. The regulation applies from 25 May 2018. GDPR will supersede the Data Protection Act 1998 which the practice already complies with but strengthens many of it’s principle.

You can find more information on the further information tab under the heading 'GDPR'. We have all of this information displayed in the patient notice board in the practice. If you have any questions then please speak to the Practice Manager.

⚠️ IMPORTANT NOTICE ⚠️ please read carefully & let friends & family without IT access know -


In line with Government advice to help slow & delay the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) infection, from Monday 16th March our appointments will be predominantly by TELEPHONE.


If you already have an appointment DO NOT ATTEND the surgery - the GP/nurse/physio will phone you instead at the allocated time.


Chronic disease annual review appointments will be postponed until a safer time. Elderly people and those with conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, asthma etc should stay at home away from the risk of infection.


If you need urgent medical advice, about Coronavirus (COVID-19) or otherwise, PHONE and you will be placed in a queue and called back by a GP asap. Do not attend the surgery unless specifically asked to by the doctor or nurse you speak to. This is for your own safety as well as our staff.


If you are ill with a temperature or new cough please stay at home for 7 days. Anyone who lives with you also needs to stay at home for 14 days from when your symptoms started. Please read and follow Self-isolation guidance carefully, and further advice on managing your symptoms is also available at 


Please order prescriptions on-line, and only when they are due. There is no need to stockpile.


Thank you.


We will endeavour to continue to keep you updated as the situation progresses. Please be aware that the situation and medical guidance is changing frequently, so please check back regularly.
