More appointments!

After reviewing the amount of appointments we offer and recruiting two new Advanced Nurse Practitioners, St Peters Surgery are now offering more appointment availability per week. To find out more, feel free to attend our next Patient Participation Group in March.

We now have a SMS messaging service for patient appointment reminders.  If you wish to receive messages please contact the reception with an up to date mobile number.  alternatively you can download the smart app to your phone Mjog Messenger for health and fitness.  If you wish to opt out then please inform a member of the reception team. 

Please note you will be offered an option as part of the reminder to cancel your appointment by texting back the word Cancel.  This is an automated service so please ensure you type only the word CANCEL for this service to work.


Please tell us what you think of the service you received when visiting the Practice - See the on-line Family and Friends Test button on the home page of this website. 


Patients who repeatedly fail to attend appointments they have made are being sent warning letters. Patients who continue to waste appointments after a warning may be removed from the patient list.



We are continuing with our drive to improve telephone access.  To reduce the demand on the telephone patients can use the "Online" Services detailed on this website.



When the surgery is closed there will be a recorded message giving clear instructions on how to contact the “Out of Hours” Service or, if the surgery is closed for training during normal hours, how to contact a doctor.  For “Out of Hours” Service - Telephone 111

St. Peter's Surgery

Please notify the surgery if you wish to attend.


PRGs are a valuable and independent source of information about patients’ views of primary care services and it is essential that we work together to ensure quality patient services especially at a time when primary care is being independently monitored by the Care Quality Commission.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England. GP practices and other primary medical services have to be registered with them by law. It is their job to check that we (St. Peter's Surgery) meet the national standards of quality and safety and in order to do that it is important that they listen to the views of people who use GP practices.

The following guide has been produced by the CQC to provide PRGs with information about the CQC role:
