Registration letters from NHS England – please respond if you get one
The NHS is carrying out work in Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly to make sure the patient details on GP lists are accurate. Letters are being sent to some patients, but not all.
If you do receive a letter, please either confirm your details or submit any changes. Changes can be made by returning the form in the prepaid envelope. If the details are correct, you can confirm by freepost, by freephone, via text message or online.
It is important to respond to the letter, as GP lists do get out of date over time. If we don’t have an accurate record of your name and address, then we or a hospital may not be able to contact you with important information.
The practice was established before the formation of the N.H.S and single-handedly by a practitioner working from his house in Eggbuckland Road. We then served the then semi-rural areas of Compton and Hartley, and some patients can even remember cattle being driven along Eggbuckland Road. With the building of new housing in Efford and Eggbuckland however, the practice has grown considerably.
Several doctors are now practicing here in the present surgery, which was newly converted and opened in 1990. The team takes great pride in providing a friendly and efficient family doctor service from our modern computerised surgery.
Doctors, nurses, health care assistants, health visitor, midwife and administrative staff form the team which works closely together, not only to help you when you are ill, but also to try to prevent serious diseases from occurring.
The entrance to the surgery is approached via a wheelchair ramp or a step. There is usually plenty of on-street parking and a disabled parking bay outside the surgery. Disabled toilets are available on the ground floor.
The practice does not have a lift to our 1st floor doctors' consulting rooms, so patients who cannot manage the stairs are asked to inform our receptionist and the appointed doctor will consult in our middle treatment room.
We politely request that pushchairs are left outside as we only have a limited space in the waiting area.
