IMPORTANT NOTICE

Monday 30th October 2017

With effect from 12 noon

Due to the high volume of patients wishing to register at this surgery, we are temporarily capping our list in order that we can continue to provide a safe and timely service to existing patients.

If you are part of the Cornwallis Group of practices, including Essenden Road, who have received a letter saying you are out of area, please call the helpline number below as some of these letters have been sent out incorrectly.

01424 735666

Email: cornwallisplazaenquiries@nhs.net 

If you are a new patient to the area wishing to register at a practice, please contact the allocation line on 01424 735652.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

When you attend for your next appointment why not use our new checking in service? As you walk into the waiting room you will see the new automatic check-in ahead of you, to the left. Just touch the screen and follow the instructions. To use it, all you need to know is your date of birth! It really is that simple!

PLEASE NOTE: GP appointments are 10 minutes in duration.

From the 1st September 2017 you will no longer be able to order repeat prescriptions via the surgery email address.

We offer Online Patient Access which will enable you to book appointments and order repeat prescriptions.

To register, please visit the surgery to complete a registration form, bringing with you two forms of identification, one clearly stating your address.

Are You a Carer?

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
