Put Patient First campaign
Demand for appointments has nearly doubled on the last 8 years but funding to general practice has not matched this.
We are managing our limited resources as effectively as we can.
You can make the difference to your practice by joining the Put Patients First Campaign to get this situation improved. Please follow this link for more information: www.putpatientfirst.rcgp.org.uk
Thanks for your understanding and cooperation!

NHS England is commissioning a new data service, known as Care.data, on behalf of theNHS.
This system includes extraction of your anonymised information which can be used by researchers, health services commissioners to help provide better care for everyone.
To find out more, please visit www.nhs.uk/caredata,for further information visit http://www.hscic.gov.uk/
If you do not wish to share your information in this way please ask a member of staff for an Opt Out Form which needs to be completed and returned to the surgery before autumn. This is also available on our website.
Please note if you have opted out of the Summary Care Records service you will NOT automatically be opted out from the Care.data service but will need to complete a new form.
