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.

This practice plans to offer the facility for all patients to order online, view and print a list of their repeat prescriptions or medicines and appliances. This will commence from mid December 2014 (Date will be published in due course).

This practice plans to offer patients facilities to view on line, export or print any summary information from their record, relating to medications, allergies, adverse reactions and any other items agreed between the practice and individual patient, from December 2014, subject to the availability of NHS GP systems and software.

We will publicise and promote our online services to our practice patients through the practice website, practice waiting room leaflets, posters and the Patient Participation Group by 14th November 2014.
