Closure of Burley Street Surgery
As you may be aware Burley Street Surgery has recently closed which has meant that we have had an influx of new patients register at our practice. When a patient asks to register and they live within our practice boundary we have to register the patient (we cannot turn anyone away). Whilst we welcome our new patients, we are aware that some patients are experiencing problems getting an appointment. Our reception staff now triage patient appointment requests to ensure our patients are prioritised and seen by the right member of staff.
We are happy to announce that we have two new GP's join our practice, Dr S Tahir and Dr S Bishop, both are helping with appointment availability.
NB. If you feel that you are due an annual review and you have not been called (due in your birthday month), please ring the surgery on 01422 374662 to make an appointment.
You may be aware that practices are required to inform all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides them.
For administrative purposes, the named GP for our patients will be the GP with whom they are registered with.
This does not prevent you from seeing any GP within the practice as you currently do, neither does it change the GP you normally see.
If you are unsure of your registered GP please ask a member of our reception team when you next attend the surgery. If you have any questions or wish to discuss this further please contact us on 01422 374662.
Statement of Intent - IT & Electronic Patient Records

Eligible patients are those who:
- are attending university/further education for the first time
- are aged 19 years on 31 August 2017 up to the age of 25 years (i.e. the day before their 25th birthday)
It is very important that you take up the vaccine. It is being offered in response to a rapidly growing increase in cases of the meningococcal disease group W but also protects against meningococcal A,C and Y.
If you are planning on going to university, please make an appointment as soon as possible before leaving for university. You are more at risk of meningitis and septicemia in the first weeks at university when you mix with lots of new people.
However, even if you are not leaving for university you are still eligible for this vaccination so please contact the surgery to make an appointment.
