Your NHS Number, Keep it Safe.

Everyone needs to use the NHS Number to identify you correctly. It is an important step towards improving the safety of your healthcare.
Always bring your NHS number with you to all appointments or quote it if you need to telephone the practice for any enquires. This will allow staff to check that they have the right patient details by checking this against your NHS number.
To improve safety always check your NHS Number on correspondence the NHS sends to you.

We will do our best to help you to resolve any concerns you may have about the care you received.
If you have a concern or there is a problem, the best way to get it resolved is usually to tell someone there and then. In Surgery, talk to the Doctor, nurse or receptionist on duty. If you want to talk to a senior manager or to someone who has not been directly involved in your care and treatment, we can usually arrange this during office hours.If you wish to make a formal complaint you can telephone or write to: Mrs Yvonne Blowfield , Practice manager
