Please help us to help you by cancelling a pre-booked appointment when you no longer require it.

During the month of March 2017 122 appointments, amounting to 43 hours of clinical time, were wasted by patients failing to attend or cancel their pre-booked appointment.

2994 appointments were attended.

Thankyou to all patients who attended their appointment.


Named Accountable GP

From 1st April 2015, all Practices are required under the 2015-2016 General Medical Services Contract to allocate a named accountable GP to all patients registered with them, including children. The Named Accountable GP will have overall responsibility for co-ordinating the care and support Churchside Medical Practice provides to you. However, we would like to stress that this does not prevent you from seeing ANY GP or Nurse within the practice or that your Named Accountable GP is always available to you, but they are simply your appointed care-co-ordinator. If you wish to know the name of your accountable GP, please ask at receptionist when you are next in the surgery. Please do not telephone the practice for this information as it will congest the telephone lines making it difficult for patients to get through with health concerns.

If you have previously decided not to share your record and completed an 'Opt-Out Form', it will not be made available.
