Book Appointments Online
Using Systm Online you can book a telephone consultation and request repeat prescriptions online. You will need to register for a special access number and password and you must be 18 years old. To register visit the surgery reception and complete the necessary paperwork. You will need to bring with you 2 pieces of identification one showing your registered address and one showing a recent picture of yourself.
When you are registered the online system can be accessed from the home page of our website by clicking the Systm Online Button on the righthand side of the home page. Please note, when booking an online telephone consultation, the time you choose is a guide only, you will be phoned back by the doctor some time during that same day. These online slots release 24 hours in advance.
You will need:
- Practice ID Number
- Access ID Number
All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure where they feel one is required. This chaperone may be a family member or friend. On occasions you may prefer a formal chaperone to be present, i.e a trained member of staff. Wherever possible we would ask you to make this request at the time of booking an appointment so that arrangements can be made and your appointment is not delayed in any way. Where this is not possible we will endeavour to provide a formal chaperone at the time of request .However occasionally it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment. Your healthcare professional may also require a chaperone to be present for certain consultations in accordance with our chaperone policy.
For housebound patients who are physically unable to attend the surgery home visits can be requested. This is done via a telephone appointment with a GP who will work with you to determine the best way to asses you and arrange a home visit if required. Home visits are at the discretion of the GP and are usually done at lunchtime.
It is very helpful for us if patients request home visits before 10am, if possible. Visits requested later than this which cannot wait until the following day may not be able to happen until the evening, after we have completed our surgeries. Our doctors typically see four patients in the practice in the time it takes to do a single home visit. For this reason, we ask our patients to come to the practice if it is at all possible. Lack of transport is not an appropriate reason for requesting a home visit.
The majority of appointments with our doctors and many of our nurses appointments are now carried out by telephone avoiding the need for some patients to attend the surgery in person. We can also offer video consultations where appropriate.
We have a computerised system for our prescriptions. If your doctor has authorised a repeat prescription you will be able to use the counterfoil of your previous prescription to order further supplies or you may telephone the surgery to make such a request. However, we do ask for at least 48 hours notice excluding the weekend. You may also request repeat prescriptions using the Online System, as mentioned above in book appointments online.
For urgent requests a doctor can be contacted throughout the day by ringing the surgery number – 01670 511393.
What to do when the GP practice is closed:
– If it’s a life-threatening emergency call 999
– If you need medical help but it’s not an emergency call 111
During normal practice opening hours, the practice remains your first point of contact
for all routine requests.
Please telephone for results in the afternoon when the receptionist can give more time to your request and when our telephone lines are less busy.
The surgery provides disabled car parking, easy access through wide automatic doors and a lift to the surgery.
