Please do not contact the practice to ask about COVID-19 vaccination. You will be contacted when you are eligible.
We have been asked by NHS England and NHS Improvement to start delivering the COVID-19 vaccination programme in December. This will be done by working together with other local GP practices (called a Primary Care Network) to provide the vaccines, rather doing vaccinations here at the practice. To enable everyone to get the vaccine in a safe and controlled way, priority groups have been agreed, so the vaccine can be delivered to people who need it first. We will contact you when you are eligible to receive the vaccine and provide you with information about where to go and when.  

Please don’t contact the practice to ask for a vaccine before then, you will only be booked when your group is invited.

All Covid-19 Information can be found on the support page. Please click here for more!

What is GPS Healthcare?

6 GP practices have merged to become 1 practice with 6 sites.

If you are a patient of these 6 practices the service you receive will still be available, but you will be able to access services at any of the sites if it is more convenient for you.

Your patient record and registration will be held by

GPS Healthcare, and your original practice will be retained as your ‘usual’ site.

  • How to find out more information— ask at your practice for an information leaflet
  • What services will be available—all those you are currently used to and in the future more as the group develops
  • What if I don’t want to be part of it—you will need to register at a practice outside of the group, NHS Choices website will give you details
  • Will my surgery close—there is no intention to alter any of the current locations.

Why are we doing it?

To deliver excellent care and service to our patients. To deliver sustainable cost-effective high quality of care. To prevent the loss of traditional primary care to commercial providers. To protect general practice and deliver services to patients within a local environment.

Benefits for patients

GPS Healthcare will provide a wealth of experienced clinicians with a broad range of special interests including diabetes, dermatology, rheumatoid arthritis and minor surgery. This may save you having to attend hospital for advice and/or treatment. One larger practice will provide security for delivery of health services, with each surgery maintaining the valuable relationships built with you over the years. Access to appointments at other sites at times better suited to you may be available.
