Dr Andrew Mills

Dr Andrew Mills will sadly be leaving us at the end of February however he shall be having a farewell session on Thursday 28th Feb from 12:30 – 16:30 to say goodbye to his patients. This will be held in the seminar room on the 2nd floor.

Patient Notice – EMIS Patient Access

Our on-line access system has been updated by EMIS (Our clinical system provider) and significantly changed. We had no notice of these changes, which happened overnight last night. The changes only really impact our internal processes and should not impact patients currently registered with the service. However, if a patient wishes to change their level of access or wishes to register for the first time there are some implications. New registrations will only be able to book a single appointment using Patient Access and we will not be able to make changes to access levels for currently registered patients. We are hoping that this will only be for a short period, maybe a couple of weeks.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but these changes were totally outside of our control.

What if I don’t want the flu jab?

If you do not wish to receive the flu vaccination we would be grateful if you could let us know so that this may be detailed on your medical records.  This will also prevent us from sending you any reminders.
