Appointments

Fed up of the long wait time? So are we! Please help us to help you - if you are unable to attend your appointment or no longer need it, please contact the surgery immediately so that your appointment is available for your neighbour.

If every person who did not need their appointment any more cancelled it, then there would be at least 58 extra GP appointments and 54 nurse appointments available per month!


Wasted Medicine

Every year millions of pounds worth of prescription medication is wasted across West Cheshire alone. Over the entire country, this is a huge amount of money.

If you are taking medication, please consider the following:

  • Only order what you need
  • Check what's in your prescription bag before you leave the pharmacy
  • Finish your course of medication, even if you start to feel better
  • Don't stockpile medication
  • Review your medicines regularly with your pharmacist and/or GP

We currently have Medical Students working with us.

Medical students may be required to sit in during consultations. If you do not feel comfortable with this, please inform a member of staff when you book your appointment or as soon as possible on arrival.

Are your contact details correct?

Please inform us of any changes to your contact details as soon as possible. If we do not hold your correct contact information (address, telephone number and email address) we will not be able to contact you regarding results, referrals and review appointments. We can even send you text reminders for your existing appointments if we have your mobile number.

Confidentiality & Data Protection

Confidentiality & Medical Records

Locked blue folderYour information is always treated in the strictest confidence. Should you have a problem that you do not wish to discuss at the reception desk please ask to talk to the receptionist in private.

The practice complies with data protection and access to medical records legislation. Reception and administration staff require access to your medical records in order to do their jobs. These members of staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the medical staff.

Everyone working for the NHS has a responsibility and a legal duty to protect your information, so that information is not disclosed to unauthorised bodies or people. 
Your information may be shared with other healthcare professionals to ensure continuity of care. Sharing some types of very sensitive information is strictly controlled by law, and anyone who receives information from us is also bound by the same legislation. If you are receiving care from another NHS body (e.g. from Districts Nurses or others such as Social Services) it may be necessary to share a limited amount of information with them so that we can work together for your benefit. When we have a duty to others (e.g. in child protection cases) anonymised patient information will also be used at local and national level to help the Health Board and Government plan services (e.g. for diabetic care).

If you do not wish your data to be shared in this way, please notify reception or your GP. We recommend you discuss your decision with your GP beforehand.

Freedom of Information

Information about the General Practitioners and the Practice required for disclosure under this act can be made available to the public. All requests for such information should be made to the practice manager.


Access to Records

In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation 2018, Data Protection Act 2018 and Access to Records Act 1990, patients may request to see or have a copy of their medical records. Such requests should be made through the practice manager. No information will be released without patient consent unless we are legally obliged to do so.
