Flu Clinics ( posted on Aug 18, 2017 )

Eligible for a NHS Flu Jab this year?


We are now booking for our 2017 flu clinics, just ask at reception if you would like an appointment. This year we are also having a "flu chair" in the surgery so if you are visiting us, for whatever reason, and the chair is free, just sit on it and when a nurse or doctor are free they will jab you.


If you have an appointment with a doctor or nurse over the next few weeks you can have your flu jab then, just ask the doctor or nurse at the time.


Flu clinics will take place on Saturdays and on weekdays starting Saturday 23rd September, please look out for additional dates or ring reception on 01677 422616 for further details.


If you do not want a flu jab this year please let us know so that we can enter this in your medical records.


The flu jab is a very safe and routine vaccine but for your additional safety we will ALWAYS have a doctor on site when you have your jab.


Our funding is partly dependant on the number of flu jabs we give each year to eligible patients so please support the surgery by having your flu jab here.

Ordering Prescriptions over the Telephone ( posted on Jul 13, 2017 )

After consultation with the Glebe House Surgery Patient Participation Group it has been decided that as of 5th November 2017 we will no longer be accepting requests for prescriptions made over the telephone.


There are a number of reasons for this decision which has been taken with patient safety in mind.


You will still be able to request prescriptions by post, at the surgery, via local pharmacies and by use of the patient online service portal. You cannot request prescriptions from local pharmacies by telephone but they do have a prescription box where you can leave your request and they will bring them to the surgery for you. We are very grateful to the local pharmacies for providing this service.


If you would like to sign up for online services, please contact reception and they will issue you with the relevant details, or alternatively click on the Patient Access button on the Welcome page of this website.


Patient Online also has an App so you can use all Patient Online Services from your mobile telephone.

Children's Toys ( posted on Jun 2, 2017 )

New Telephone System ( posted on Apr 12, 2016 )

Glebe House Surgery has recently updated the telephone system that we use. This should result in a much better patient experience when contacting the surgery by telephone.

Early Morning Opening ( posted on Nov 6, 2014 )

Due to patient requests and following a sucessful trail period of opening the surgery doors at 8am we will be continuing with this for the forseeable future. This is so that patients arriving for early appointments can book in in good time for their appointment. The "same day" appointments will now be released at 8.00 am and these can be booked on line but telephone lines will not be active for appointment booking until 8.30 am as usual. However, some of our doctors will be seeing patients who have previously booked in for routine appointments from 8.10 am enabling patients who require early routine appointments to book them in advance.


At the request of  some patients eearly telephone appointments are now available with some GPs.


The best way to book an appointment is by registering for online booking which can be done via Patient Access on this website. Unfortunately it is only possible to book one advance appointment at a time so if you already have an appointment booked at the surgery you will have to use the more conventional method of ringing 01677 422616 or presenting at reception.  Any medicals are to be booked over the telephone because these often necessitate more than one appointment.  Also now with HGV medicals patients need to attend the optician for an eye test prior to coming for the HGV medical with the doctor.

Statement of Intent ( posted on Sep 25, 2014 )



New contractual requirements came into force from 1 April 2014 requiring that GP Practices should make available a “statement of intent” in relation to the following IT developments:


  • Summary Care Record (SCR)
  • GP to GP Record Transfers (GP2GP)
  • Patient Online Access to their GP medical record


The same contractual obligations require that we have a “statement of intent” regarding these developments in place and publicised by 30 September 2014.


Please find below details of the practice’s stance with regards to these points:-


Summary Care Record (SCR)


NHS England require practices to enable successful automated uploads of any changes to patient’s summary information, at least on a daily basis, to the summary care record (SCR) or have published plans in place to achieve this by 31st of March 2015.


Having your Summary Care Record (SCR) available will help anyone treating you without your full medical record. They will have access to information about any medication you may be taking and any drugs that you have a recorded allergy or sensitivity to. Of course if you do not want your medical records to be available in this way then you will need to let us know so that we can update your record.


Glebe House Surgery confirm that your SCR is automatically updated on at least a daily basis to ensure that your information is as up to date as it can possibly be.


GP to GP Record Transfers

NHS England requires practices to utilise the GP2GP facility for the transfer of patient records between practices, when a patient registers or de-registers (this does not apply to temporary patient registrations).


It is very important that you are registered with a doctor at all times. If you leave your previous practice and register with a new GP, your medical records will be removed from your previous doctor and forwarded on to your new GP via NHS England. It can take up to 2 weeks for your paper records to reach your new surgery. However, GP2GP record transfers your electronic medical record is transferred to your new practice much sooner. 


Glebe House Surgery confirm that GP2GP transfers are already active, and we send and receive patient records via this system.


Patient Online Access to Their GP Record


NHS England require practices to promote and offer the facility to enable patients online access to appointments, prescriptions, allergies and adverse reactions or have published plans in place to achieve this by 31st of March 2015.


We are now fully compliant with this requirement and you can apply for this function to be added to your online access by completing a pro-forma which can be obtained at reception or can be downloaded as follows:


Patient Information Leaflet

Application form


GP2GP record transfers ( posted on Sep 19, 2014 )

Glebe House Surgery has a contractual requirement to utilise the GP2GP facility for the transfer of patient records between practices, when a patient registers or de-registers (not for temporary registration).


GP2GP is now active within our clinical system.

Summary Care Record ( posted on Sep 19, 2014 )

GP practices are required to provide an automated upload of any changes to a patient's summary information, at least once every working day, to the Summary Care Record (SCR). 


The requirement is on the basis of the current definition of the SCR, i.e. the core SCR record contains medications, allergies and adverse reactions and uploaded on the basis of implied patient consent. Additional information can only be uploaded with explicit patient consent and should be information required to support patient care in an emergency or urgent situation.


Glebe House Surgery is now fully compliant with this requirement.


Patient access to their GP record ( posted on Sep 19, 2014 )

From April 2014 GP practices are required to promote and offer the facility for patients to view online, export or print any summary information from their records i.e. medications, allergies, adverse reactions and any additional information agreed between the GP and patient.


We are now fully compliant with this requirement. Please contact reception to request a pro-forma for adding this to your online access functions.

Care Quality Commission and Patient Groups ( posted on Jul 16, 2013 )

Guide for Patient Participation Groups

The Care Quality Commission (CCQ) has published a guide for Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) about what they do, how they will work with them, and what to expect when they inspect their GP practices. For a copy of this guide, please click here. CQC/PPG Guide.

Cervical Screening ( posted on Jan 25, 2013 )

The cervical screening test, commonly known as the smear test, can detect abnormal cells that develop before cancer. By taking a smear test when invited by their GP, women give themselves the best chance of detecting pre cancerous cells, which can be easily treated.

Patient Group ( posted on Sep 21, 2011 )

We are currently seeking patients who would be willing to join our Patient Group. This group will meet 3 or 4 times a year to help us to better understand what patients think about the surgery. We will be looking at what we do well and also what areas we can improve on. Our aim is to make the group as representative as possible of our patient list. We are particullarly short of patients under the age of 40. If you feel that you would be willing to contribute to this work please contact Martin Baggaley, Practice Manager, at the surgery on 01677 422616 or give your contact details to reception and Martin will contact you.
