Accessing the care you need 

The easiest and quickest way to book an appointment is to send a request using PATCHS. 

To request an appointment, you will need to complete a request using the online system, PATCHS. A doctor will read your information and you will be notified of the outcome within 24 hours. You can also use PATCHS for administrative queries such as referrals, sick notes or any other letters.

How to use PATCHS?

PATCHS requires new users to make an account. You only need to enter your details the first time you create an account. PATCHS will then prompt you to answer a few questions about your issue, typically around five. So that we can fully understand the reason for your appointment, please provide a good level of detail.

If you are using PATCHS for the first time, please watch this helpful video.

Once you submit your PATCH, it will be seen by a healthcare professional, who will allocate a member of our clinical team to deal with your issue. This healthcare professional may call you or want to see you in person.

Occasionally, with the information you provide, we may be able to directly send medication to your pharmacy, order tests or make referrals.

If we require more information from you, we may reply to your PATCH with more specific questions.

To cancel your appointment: 

Whenever possible we ask you to come to the surgery for appointments as we have full access to your records and to treatment facilities. You can usually be seen sooner if you can come to the surgery as we can see three or four patients in the surgery in the time it takes to do one home visit. 

If you are too unwell to come in, please try to phone before 11:00am. Your request will be triaged by one of our doctors. If the doctor feels your problem would be appropriately dealt with in the surgery then you will be offered an appointment and the home visit request declined. 

Please note that the timing of a visit cannot be guaranteed. 

If you need medical help now, use NHS 111 online or call 111.
