Easter Bank Holiday


The current NHS Digital (NHSD) extract of GP data for Research purposes (known as the GPDPR) has been delayed due to NHSD wishing to review the way in which this data will be collected, to conduct more public involvement and information about the plans and change the way in which patients can opt out of the extract of their GP data.

Currently the only way to opt out is to complete a Type 1 opt out form and return this to the practice by the 1st September.  However, this extract will not be taken until the NHSD have changed the way it will take the data and respect the patient’s choice for using their data.  NHSD are introducing the following changes to the opt out process which will mean that patients will be able to change their opt-out status at any time::-

  • Patients do not need to register a Type 1 opt-out by 1st September to ensure their GP data will not be uploaded.
  • NHS Digital will create the technical means to allow GP data that has previously been uploaded to the system via the GPDPR collection to be deleted when someone registers a Type 1 opt-out.

 The plan to retire Type 1 opt-outs will be deferred for at least 12 months while we get the new arrangements up and running and will not be implemented without consultation with the RCGP, the BMA and the National Data Guardian. 

This means that you can opt out at any time in the future and NHSD will delete data that they already have taken for research purposes, the deadline of the 01/09/2020 has been delayed until a new system of opt out is developed.  Hopefully, this will be a simple centralised approach via the NHS app or NHS website to avoid paper form and administration work for your GP.

We will update you when we know more about the NHSD plans to change how you can control who has access to your data.

Masks and social distancing rules will remain mandatory in all healthcare settings beyond 19 July, NHS England has confirmed.

Public Health England’s (PHE) infection prevention control guidelines and hospital visiting guidance are set to remain in place for staff and visitors, even as restrictions are eased elsewhere. Please see link below.

Please note from the 1st June we no longer accept prescription requests over the phone, you can either post your request through the letter box outside the surgery or order online. If you do not have access to your online account please call reception and we will be more than happy to get this set up for you.

Emergency and Out of Hours

“In the event that the surgery is closed you can seek advice by phoning NHS 111 for non-emergency symptoms, or by contacting your pharmacist. Calls to the NHS 111 service are free from both landlines and mobiles. If these services suggest you need to seek urgent care then Primary Care 24, right next to the Emergency Department at King's Mill Hospital, provides a 24 hour walk in service.

Out of Hours is from when the GP Surgery closes to the time it opens in the morning. If you require urgent attention during these hours, appointments are made through 111 and you will be seen at your local Out of Hours Service provider.”

If you have a life threatening medical emergency please dial 999.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency. Stroke symptoms (face fallen on side, loss of movement in one arm, speech slurred) constitute an emergency. See the FAST campaign for more info on stroke symptoms -

For any information regarding minor illness why not take a look at our minor illness information right here on our website!

This practice is supporting vital health and care planning and research by sharing your data with NHS Digital.

Type one opt-out Form


Named Accountable GP

From 1st April 2015 onwards Practices are required, under the GMS contract, to allocate a named accountable GP to all patients, including children.

Having a named accountable GP does not prevent you from seeing another doctor at the practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times and if you need to be seen urgently you may wish to see another doctor. All of your records are viewable by every doctor in the Surgery.

This does not change the way in which we operate or affect your ability to make an appointment or speak with any of the GPs in the practice.
We have now allocated all patients to a named GP. Patients is allocated on a by surname basis based on the number of clinics a doctor runs per week:

Patients with a surname beginning A - L: Dr Wageeh Mikhail

Patients with a surname beginning M - S: Dr Gopinath Singaravel

Patients with a surname beginning T - Z: Dr Emad Gabrawi

New patients registering from 1st April 2015 onwards will be allocated at point of registration.

Should you express a wish to change your named GP we will do our best to accommodate your wishes. Please write to the Practice Manager requesting the change.

Please note: there is no need to telephone the practice for this information.



All patients over 75 who do not already attend the surgery for an annual review are welcome to book a health check with the health care assistant. The health care assistant will check your blood pressure, weight, height, urine and enquire about any health needs. Please book with the receptionist if you wish to have a health check.

This should promote good general health and can help to detect minor problems that you have not had a chance to discuss during a regular consultation.

Please do tell us about any special circumstances e.g. if you care for someone.



Electronic Prescribing

As from 2nd July 2013 we be starting to use the Electronic Prescription Service...

The Electronic Prescription Service allows your prescription to be sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice.

To sign up, you need to speak to your preferred pharmacy and complete a form to confirm that they can receive your prescription directly.

Once you have signed up, your chosen pharmacy will receive your prescription electronically and you will not need to collect your paper prescription from us.  If you have already nominated a pharmacy, from 02/07/13 your prescription will be sent electronically to them unless you tell us otherwise.

Should you need to obtain a paper prescription for any reason, just let us know at the time of ordering.  This service is optional and you can continue to collect paper prescriptions as you do now if you prefer.

For more information, please speak to your Pharmacist

The NHS Friends & Family Test

We want you to have the best possible experience of care.  The NHS Friends and Family Test is a way of gathering your feedback, so we can continually review our service.  It is based on one simple question:

"How likely are you to recommend our service to friends and family if they needed similar care of treatment?"

Your feedback will help us learn more about what you think of your expeirence - what you like and what you think we could improve.  Ultimately, you're helping us to make changes that will ensure we can offer the best possible care.

If you'd prefer to give your comments anonymously, then please do so.  If you do leave your contact details then we might get in touch, to talk to you about your feedback so we can better understand your views.

If you would like to leave feedback please pick up a card in surgery or click on the box "Take our Practice Survey" at the bottom of this page.

Patient Participation Group

We have a successful Patient Participation Group that is up and running who would welcome any other patients to work with them in a 'virtual' form.  If you are interested in helping to make improvements to the practice and are happy to partake in future surveys, etc, please click on the 'Join our Patient Group' tab. 

We look forward to improving services and communication to our patients through this group.

The results of the practice survey are posted on the website and can be located in either the Patient Group or Survey Report area which can be selected to by the link on the right hand side of this page.  Paper copies are also in the practice. 


Minor Injuries Clinics - Our qualified Nursing team are happy to provide a Minor Injuries service to our patients should you need it.  Please contact the surgery first, rather than attending Accident and Emergency at the hospital, so that we can try to assist you in the best way possible.

Online Appointments / Prescription Ordering

We now have appointments available with doctors to book online and the facility to order your monthly repeat prescription online.  Please register at the surgery for this facility.  You will need to come in and collect your personal username and password to use the online facility, unfortunately, we cannot give this to anyone or post this to you due to security reasons.

Charges for Non-NHS work

It is important to understand that many GP's are not employed by the NHS; they are self-employed and have to cover their cost for staff, buildings, heating, lighting etc. in the same way as any small business, hence the charges incurred for non-NHS work.  The standard charge for a letter is £30.  A full list of charges is available from the practice and is also displayed in the waiting area.
