Remember that you are now able to access some of these services online.

NEW COMPUTER SYSTEM
We are changing to a new clinical computer system (Systmone) on 1st November 2018 and this will have an impact on our usual services for you in the lead up to the ‘Live date’
Until we have our new system up and running, appointments will only be available to book up to Friday 16th November.
It would be really helpful if you avoided asking for a routine appointment between 22nd October and the 5th November as availability will be restricted.
Between 22nd October and the 1st November we will not be able to send any prescriptions electronically to your preferred pharmacy. We will be working very closely with local pharmacies to try to minimise any inconvenience to you.
Repeat prescriptions will also take a little longer to process over this period. We are happy to issue early - please ask us!
Normal service will be resumed as quickly as possible after 1st November 2018
Online access to the practice
The change of computer system means that the ’ Patient Access’ application will no longer be available for those who have registered to use this.
We will be working very hard after the 1st November to transfer all online users onto the new ‘systmonline’ application and provide you with detail including usernames and passwords as quickly as we can. Where possible we will send these to your registered email address. If we cannot do this your new details will be sent by either text message or post
If you have not received your new online details by 21st November then please let us know.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience and we thank you for your understanding during this transitional period.

Bowel Cancer Screening
To detect cases of bowel cancer sooner, the NHS offers two types of bowel cancer screening to adults registered with a GP in England:
- All men and women aged 60-74 are invited to carry out a faecal occult blood (FOB) test. Every two years, they're sent a home test kit, which is used to collect a stool sample. If you're 75 or over, you can ask for this test by calling the freephone helpline on 0800 707 60 60.
