Gluten free products and products that can easily be purchased over the counter will no longer be prescribed by your GP.  There will also be changes to baby milk and oral nutritional supplements.

If you have any queries about any of the new policies please see the link above for contact details.

New Patient Registration

The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area.  As it often takes sometime for records to be forwarded from your former practice all newly registered patients may be asked to complete a health questionnaire and may be offered a consultation with the doctor. 

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration.  Please contact reception for further information.

Please note that if you fail to attend for your first appointment with the Practice you may be refused registration.

The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them.  You can download the guide below.

Elgar House Patient Booklet

It’s Your Practice: A patient guide to GP services has been put together by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) for patients. 

This guide has been produced as part of the RCGP’s aim to build stronger relationships between you and your doctors and encourage the involvement and inclusion of you in your own care.

The guide provides helpful information on all aspects of using GP services: from finding and choosing a practice and how to get the most out of a GP consultation to accessing health records and understanding patients’ rights and responsibilities.

It is split into several sections including:

  • General Practice explained
  • Choosing the right practice for you
  • Registering with a GP practice
  • Seeing your GP – consultations
  • Seeing your GP – the next steps
  • After your GP consultation
  • Your health record
  • Your rights and responsibilities as a patient
  • Get involved with your practice


The publication is part of a push by the NHS as a whole to encourage you to understand how you can get the most out of primary care – which also includes how you can become more involved in monitoring your own health.
