We offer screening to some patients in the form of a routine Blood Pressure check.  We are looking for and irregular heartbeat (Atrial Fibrillation) which if left undetected increases the chance of stroke and further heart complications.  This is a routine form of preventative medicine.



PORINGLAND NEW BUILDING -  We have a couple of problems which we are ediscussing with the architect.  There is a serious echo in reception.  This can be sorted and there is a company advising us.  Meanwhile, if you need to speak to a receptionist confidentially please just ask as we have a convenient room to slip into. 

NAMED GP - Everyone in the practice now has a named GP.  If you are unsure who yours is then please ask at reception, but please remember that you can still see whichever GP you prefer.


Recent Survey report: We recently ran a survey to find out how you felt about being kept waiting for your appointment when a GP is running late.  Click the 'Survey report' section in the right hand column to see the report.  A big thank you to all those who participated, your feedback is very important to us.

In Times of Bereavement

If Death Occurs At Home

1. Telephone the doctor who will visit to confirm that death has taken place.

2. Contact a funeral director.

3. Arrange to collect the doctor's Medical Certificate of Death (usually from the surgery).

4. Take this to the Registrars Office, (together with the deceased's Medical Card and Birth Certificate, if available) for the area in which the death took place. Alternatively you can register by declaration at any convenient Registrars Office but certificates will not be available as these will have to be posted to you a few days later.

5. The Registrar will normally issue a Green coloured certificate for you to give to your funeral director who will look after necessary arrangements for the funeral. The Registrar will also issue a white notification certificate for the DSS. They will also enquire as to the number of Certified Copies you require for dealing with the deceased finances (a fee is payable for each copy).

If The Death Occurs In Hospital

1. Contact a funeral director to inform him his services are required.

2. Collect the certificate from the hospital then follow 4 - 5 as above

Note For Cremation

Your funeral director will usually liaise directly with the surgery regarding the additional certification required.
