Save time – do it online!

GP online services gives patients the option to book appointments, request repeat prescriptions and view their GP records, using their computer, tablet or smartphone rather than having to phone or visit their practice.

Online services complement the existing ways patients can access appointments, prescriptions and their records. Our practices already have the facility to offer online access to records and transactional services for our patients.

If you are not already registered for GP online services please let a member of the practice team know you would like to use this service.

*********************************************

Thank you to both the Biggleswade Art Society and  Photographic Society for supplying a lovely selection of pictures and photos to display around the Practice. They are available to buy, anyone interested can contact the artist directly - the details can be found on each piece.

Informing Patients of their Named GP

From April 2015 all GP practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them. 

Every patient at this practice has been assigned to one of the GP partners.

 

Please be assured that this will not impact your experience of the care the Practice offers, the provision of appointments, your treatment, or prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you have always done.

It is important to be clear that you do not need to wait and only see your named GP. 

 

If you would like to know who your allocated GP is then please ask us when you next attend or contact Reception who will be happy to inform you.
