Treatment you can trust

We’re run by Care UK the UK’s largest independent provider of health and social care. Care UK works in close partnership with local authorities, and NHS commissioners, running a broad range of services, from urgent care services and doctors' surgeries like The Hill, to out-of-hours and 111 services, to care homes and homecare services for older people.

We believe in the importance of delivering efficient, accessible and high quality healthcare services, reducing waiting times as well as the number of visits to A&E departments that could be handled by other services. Visit our website to find out more about our work.

This practice currently offers patients’ facilities to book, view, amend, cancel and print appointments online.

We offer the facility for all patients to order online, view and print a list of their repeat prescriptions or medicines and appliances.

Support for disabilities

The Accessible Information Standard aims to ensure that patients (or their carers) who have a disability or sensory loss receive information they can access and understand. For example in large print, braile or via email.

As part of the Accessible Information Standard we must:

  • Identify patients who may have an additional communication need.
  • Record the patient's need in our clinical GP system.
  • Flag the patient's record to assure additional communication needs are obvious to practice staff;
  • Share this information with other care givers such as social care;
  • Act to ensure our staff can effectively communicate with patients who may have additional communication needs.

If you feel this applies to you, or someone you care for please let us know by telephoning us on 0345 111 1310 every day between 8am-8pm.
