Due to a shortage of GP's, we have temporarily capped our lists and are currently not accepting new registrationsClick here to see how you can help our receptionists deal with your request in the most appropriate way.

Due to changes in processing, urine samples will not be accepted after 12.00 o'clock.  Please call between 2pm and 4:30pm to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request then.

Please note Albert Road Surgery will be closed for GP appointments in the afternoon on Thursday 12th April 2018 and all day on Friday 13th April 2018.  Sidley Surgery will remain open as usual.  We apologise for this inconvenience to patients'.




We are committed to providing a safe, comfortable environment where patients and staff can be confident that best practice is being followed at all times and the safety of everyone is of paramount importance.



A chaperone acts as a witness for a patient and staff during a medical consultation, examination or procedure where they feel one is required.


If you wish to have a chaperone, please do not hesitate to ask the doctor or healthcare practitioner. The chaperone may be a family member or friend.


On occasion a formal chaperone maybe present i.e. a trained, enhanced DBS checked senior member of staff.


It is practice policy that doctors and healthcare practitioners should always offer a chaperone for an intimate examination. They can also be requested for certain consultations and procedures in accordance with the detailed practice policy.


Where it is not possible to arrange a chaperone, it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment.


You may request to see a full copy of the Practice Chaperone Policy or ask the Reception staff to see the Senior Manager on duty if you have any questions.
