Welcome to Church Lane Surgery Online.
********CHANGES TO THE APPOINTMENT SYSTEM*********
WE HAVE LISTENED TO PATIENT FEEDBACK AND THE GP's HAVE DECIDED TO CHANGE THE CURRENT 'BOOK ON THE DAY' APPOINTMENT SYSTEM.
FROM W/C 26TH JUNE 2017 ALL ROUTINE APPOINTMENTS WILL BE BOOKED IN ADVANCE AND NOT ON THE DAY.
ON THE 10th JULY 2017 WE WILL WELCOME OUR NEW ADVANCED NURSE PRACTITIONER, SUE SHARP TO THE SURGERY TEAM.
FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE VISIT THE 'APPOINTMENTS' PAGE ON THE WEBSITE.
**After 14 years working at The Church Lane Surgery, Dr Cooper will be relocating to Cornwall in August. He is moving there with his family, and will continue to work as a GP**
Welcome to our website where we hope you will find enhanced convenience added to first class healthcare. Find out when we are open and how to see a member of the team. We’ve made life a little easier with practice updates, news on the latest health issues and even access to repeat medication all at your fingertips.
Your Good Health
Access to a wide range of healthcare services is a key element of a good local practice. We don’t just want to see you when you’re ill we want to make sure you stay healthy too. Check out how we can cover both bases with our clinics and services.
Our professional team will ensure you receive the best attention at all times whether you’re attending a specialist clinic or a routine appointment. If you’re new to the area registration is easy and comes with the comfort of discretion and confidentiality assured.
From the 1st of April 2015 all practices are required to allocate a named GP to all of their patients. All of our patients have been allocated a GP. If you are not aware of your named GP, please contact the practice and we can inform you of who it is.
This does NOT prevent you from seeing any other GP.
Our appointment system has now changed. All GP routine appointments are now book on the day or within 24 hours, with staggered times in which they release. We do still have the emergency doctor available throughout the day as usual.
At 8am - Our morning appointments release onto the system.
At 11am - Our afternoon/evening appointments release onto the system.
At 3pm - The first hour of the following morning's appointments release onto the system.
We can still book 4 weeks ahead with the GP's for their extended hours appointments providing availability.
Tuesday evening - 6:30pm - 8pm
Wednesday morning - 7am - 8am
Thursday morning - 7am - 8am
Thursday evening 6:30pm - 8pm
Please note Church Lane Surgery can only book hospital transport for your first appointment.
If you require a follow up appointment, the transport should be arranged through the hospital by yourself at the time of your hospital appointment.
You are eligible if you meet the following criteria:
If you have a medical condition which affects your mobility, or if you need the facilities of an ambulance crew in order to travel safe.
Please mention to the Doctor at the time of referral if you feel you may need transport.
We have the facility to enable patients to book routine GP appointments online. Once some form of ID has been seen by reception, i.e, drivers licence, passport, utility bill etc, a unique login will be printed which will allow you to register onto the online booking service. Once registered, you will also be able to request your repeat prescription online. Please click on the link below for this service, once you have your login details:
