DVLA - Section 88 of the Road Traffic Act 1988

Many GPs may not feel confident to advise patients whether they are fit to drive or not, and in normal circumstances a factual report would be supplied to the DVLA so that their expert medical advisers can decide upon fitness.  If an opinion is provided that someone is fit, and then an accident occurs, questions may be raised around the judgement of the GP.  If the GP states the patient is not fit, then this can adversely affect the long-term relationship with that patient.  For these reasons, if there is any doubt about whether a person is fit to drive, the GP should decline to provide this assurance, and should write to DVLA explaining that an opinion cannot be given but offer to provide factual information about a person’s health.

Disposing of Unwanted Medication

Please do not leave unwanted medication or sharps on our doorsteps as this could potentially be very dangerous. Medication should be removed from the cardboard boxes and put sealed in a plastic bag. Used or unused needles should be secured within sharps bins that have been properly sealed. Items should then be brought to the surgery and handed into dispensary for safe destruction.

Extended Hours: the practice offers appointments to patients on various days through the week outside our core contracted hours. When a bank holiday or training day falls at the same time as we would normally offer extended hours, we will reallocate the appointments, usually during the same week. Please contact our receptionists to find out when we can offer appointments for any given week or check online and book through the NHS App or SystmOnline.

Try the new NHS App

If you’re a patient at our practice you can now use the new NHS App, a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet.

You can use the NHS App to check your symptoms and get instant advice, book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, view your GP medical record and more.

If you already use SystmOnline you can continue to use it. You can use the NHS App as well.
