From the age 12...
A young person aged 12 or above is generally considered mature enough to understand and make their own informed decisions. They have a legal right to access their own records, and can allow or prevent access by others, including their parents. However, each case will be individually considered.
Any parental access to a child’s records must be in the child’s best interests.
If you have any issues accessing this service, please ask reception for further details.
Patients may ask to speak to a doctor or the nurse by telephone during the working day, but please note, that this is not always possible and is ordinarily considered as an appointment.
If the call is not urgent and staff are busy with patients the patient may be asked to call back after surgery.
In other circumstances it may be necessary for the doctor or nurse to call you back at a time more convenient to them.
Mother and baby 6 week checks are carried out on a Wednesday morning between 10:00 – 11:30.

If possible, please try to telephone reception before 10:00 if you require a home visit.
You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice.
Your GP will only arrange a visit for you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed.
You can be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby, or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
