Providing lifelong care that is: safe, effective & dependable - for all of our community.





February 2021 - In order to keep our patients safe, the surgery is continuing to operate a triage model of care.  Once your care needs have been assessed by a clinician - either by phone or by reviewing your online consultation - please be assured that you will be offered a face-to-face appointment if the clinician feels that your care cannot be handled over the phone. 



COVID-19 Vaccine - We are joining with our colleagues in S&W Herefordshire to deliver the COVID-19 vaccines from a central location in Ross-on-Wye.  Patients will be contacted directly to attend the clinics in the order determined by NHS England, starting with the staff and residents of care homes.  Be assured that as soon as you are entitled to receive the vaccine, you will be contacted.  Please note that in order to staff the clinics, we are having to reduce the number of routine appointments at the surgery.  Please be patient with our reception team if you are not able to book an appointment for the day of your choice.

Please use Online Consult - This is a new service for all NHS GP Practices and our reception team can walk you through how to use it.

Patients’ rights and responsibilities


Patient Confidentiality


We respect your right to privacy and keep all your health information confidential and secure. We record information about you so that you can receive the best possible care and treatment. We keep this information, together with details of your care, to ensure that your doctor or nurse has accurate and up-to-date information. We sometimes need to pass on information about you to other people, such as hospitals, Herefordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (formally Herefordshire Primary Care Trust), or the Dept. of Work & Pensions. This is always done confidentially or by removing identifying details when they are not essential. All NHS staff have a legal duty to maintain the highest level of confidentiality about patient information.


Your personal information is only available to those involved in your care and you should never be asked for personal medical information by anyone not involved in your care. You have a right to know what information we hold about you. If you would like to see your records, please contact the Practice Manager. For further information please visit the Department of Health Website: www.dh.gov.uk


Patients with Disabilities


We have suitable facilities to accommodate patients and visitors who use a wheelchair. There is ample parking and facilities are easily accessible on the ground floor. Should you require help, any member of staff will be pleased to assist you.


Making a Complaint or leaving a review on NHS Choices


If you wish to comment on the service provision or make a complaint, please telephone or write to the Practice Manager – Sue Suehr. You can also leave a review on NHS Choices, although specific issues are more effectively dealt with through our complaints process where we can address problems directly. See the Our Documents page to download a complaints form. 


Zero Tolerance


This Practice supports the Government’s Zero Tolerance Zone Campaign. We ask that you treat our GP’s and practice staff properly – without the use of violence or abuse. If a patient is violent or abusive they will be warned to stop their behaviour. If they persist, we may exercise our right to take action to have them removed, immediately if necessary, from our list of patients.
