Bowel Screening – Take the Test

Patients aged between 60 and 74 are sent a bowel screening kit by the NHS National Bowel Screening Programme. Our doctors and nurses believe it is important that patients receive relevant screening and strongly encourage all patients to take the test.  Whilst screening does not diagnose bowel cancer, the results will tell you whether you need an examination of your bowels called a colonoscopy.

Accountable / Named GP

All patients have a named accountable GP who has the overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice. They will also work with other relevant professionals, who are involved in your care, to ensure that any care package you require meets your individual needs. As a patient you do not have to take any further action. We are informing patients of their allocated GP as they contact the practice but if you would like to know who your or your child’s allocated GP is please ask at reception or telephone the practice.

Patient Participation Group (PPG)

The Practice has now established a group of patients who are willing to contribute some of their time to the development of the Practice and its Health Services.

If you are interested in joining our PPG please contact the surgery or e-mail us at [email protected]
