Services

NON NHS Service

The NHS does not pay for some of the services we provide. These include private sick notes, insurance forms, holiday cancellation forms, medical reports, fitness to travel certificates, private prescriptions, and some vaccination services. Our fees for these services, which are in line with BMA approved national guidelines, are displayed in the surgery.

About Patient Access

Do you want to book an appointment when we're closed? 
Or let us know about your change of address? 
Patient online access gives you access to ordering repeat prescriptions, booking routine appointments with the Doctor, Nurse or Health Care Assistant and you can view parts of your health records.

How to apply
 
Please complete a registration form and read the information leaflet. Once you have completed the form and brought it back in person with identification you will receive your pin via your chosen method of communication on the form.  
Once you've received your pin you're away!

Why we ask for identification

It may seem unnecessary to have identification when we probably know you well but we have certain legal obligations that apply to records access to maintain patient confidentiality.

SMS Text Messaging Service

Instantly receive a message once your test results have been processed by your GP, sign up to SMS Text Messaging Service.

Save time calling reception to find if your test results are ready, sign up to SMS Text Messaging Service.

Central Surgery would like to offer you the ability to receive text message reminders for health promotion, appointment reminders and test results. We might also occasionally send information about special clinics we are running that you might be interested in.

The SMS service should not be solely relied upon, as the responsibility of attending and cancelling appointments still rests with you, but we hope this will make things easier.

Messages are generated by an NHS secure service; however they are transmitted over a public network to a personal phone.

The practice will never transmit any information that would enable an individual patient to be identified or specifically which tests they have had.

Please complete the consent form if you would like to be contacted by text message.
