The Medical Centre is easily accessible for those with disabilities as all our patient services are sited on the ground floor, corridors are wide enough for manual wheelchairs and there is the provision of a disabled toilet at the front of the building, accessed using a Radar key.

SMS Text Messaging
The Practice is introducing the use of text messaging as another form of communication.

We are committed to providing a professional service. Our surgery is equipped and staffed to provide the full range of health care during the day up to 5.00 pm. We are not always able to provide a chaperone after this time which limits some examinations and procedures. In addition to this, we provide a number of specialised services at particular times. The receptionist will help you make an appointment.
Named Accountable GP
The Practice is required by the Government under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP, therefore individual patients will be informed of their named accountable GP.
- All current and new patients registered with this Practice will be allocated a named GP
- Your accountable GP is responsible for your overall care at the Practice, however you are welcome to see any GP within the Practice
- If you would like to know the name of your accountable GP, please ask at the reception desk
Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other Doctor in the Practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discus them with an alternative Doctor.

BRIDLINGTON FREE PRESS REPORT
We have introduced an on line Repeat Prescribing Request system which is now operational.
The system is linked to Systmone, the Practice's clinical system, so when you log in it will automatically show a list of all your current repeat medications. You will be able to order them 5 days before they are due and this is indicated by a small box appearing next to the drug name, which you tick if you require. The prescription will be ready for collection within the usual timescales.
Could we remind patients only to order the medication that you need as there is currently a national campaign to help reduce waste drugs.
If you wish to use this system, you will need to call into the surgery and ask to be registered for Systmone On line prescribing and the receptionist will issue you with a user name and temporary password, which can be changed when you are in the system.
This is an easy and simple way to order your repeat medication and can be ordered anytime you remember that your medication is due.
We have recently introduced an on-line appointment booking system, please click on the icon below to make your appointment.
Once you have received your user name and password, click on the icon above and it will take you directly to the log in page.
You can also download the NHS App for your smartphone (see link below). This app is free of charge and is a convenient way to order your medication, book appointments and access your medical record.
