Welcome to Newmarket Road Surgery....
There is wheelchair access through the main surgery door at the rear of the building. Patients can be seen in a downstairs consulting room if they cannot manage the stairs.
We do have a small car park at the back of the surgery but it is not large and so there are very limited parking spaces. It does get extremely busy, especially in the mornings, so if you can get to the surgery using other forms of transport apart from the car we would encourage you to do so.
CHANGES TO THE CLINICAL COMPUTER SYSTEM AT THE SURGERY AND THE TEMPORARY EFFECTS ON BOOKING ROUTINE APPOINTMENTS AND ORDERING REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS INCLUDING ONLINE.
On the 27 and 28 May we are moving to a new clinical computer system. Ultimately we feel this will provide us with a more robust and integrated system but there will be some inevitable disruption to the normal running of the surgery during May 2015. At the bottom of this piece are links to a couple of posters that explain the changes that will be taking place. These are designed to alert as many patients as possible to the situations regarding appointment bookings (during 21 - 28 May 2015) and very importantly repeat prescrption ordering and the dates when we will not be able to take repeat requests (11 - 28 May 2015). We fully appreciate that this will be an incovenience to many of you, but we need to make sure that at all times we are operating in a safe and robust way. To ensure this, we need to manage workflows carefully whilst we are changing our systems and undergoing intensive staff training. Please be assured we will do our utmost to keep things running as smoothly as possible. If you have any questions do speak to the surgery and we will be more than happy to help you. with very many thanks for your co-operation over this difficult period.
