Consult with your Doctor online

We’ve recently launched a new system you can use to check your symptoms and submit forms to us.

Its available online by following the link below or via www.patientaccess.com. All you need to do is click the link and itll take you to an online form where you outline your symptoms. Youll then receive access to tailored and clinically approved articles and videos which will help you self-manage your condition.

The forms are sent directly and securely to us at the practice so we can check your answers and assess whether you need a face-to-face appointment with the GP or not and if not, well give you the advice you need on what to do next.

The forms are tailored to you and theyve all been approved by clinicians so the advice you get is really accurate and helpful.

You can fill in the forms at any time, day or night, so it means you have round the clock access to the information you need to manage your conditions.

Its really simple to use, you can just follow the link below and the forms are clear and easy to understand.

In Times of Bereavement

In the unfortunate event that a person has passed away, there are three things that must be done in the first few days;

  • Get a medical certificate from your GP or hospital doctor (this is necessary to register the death)
  • Register the death within 5 days (8 days in Scotland). You will then receive the necessary documents for the funeral.
  • Make the necessary funeral arrangements.

Register the death

If the death has been reported to the coroner (or Procurator Fiscal in Scotland) they must give permission before registering the death.

You can register the death if you are a relative, a witness to the death, a hospital administrator or the person making the arrangements with the funeral directors.

You can use the ‘Register a Death’ page on the gov.uk website that will guide you through the process. This will also explain the registration process for Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Arrange the funeral

The funeral can usually only take place after the death is registered. Most people use a funeral director, though you can arrange a funeral yourself.

Funeral directors

Choose a funeral director who’s a member of one of the following:

These organisations have codes of practice - they must give you a price list when asked.

Some local councils run their own funeral services, for example for non-religious burials. The British Humanist Association can also help with non-religious funerals.

Arranging the funeral yourself

Contact the Cemeteries and Crematorium Department of your local council to arrange a funeral yourself.

Funeral costs

Funeral costs can include:

  • funeral director fees
  • things the funeral director pays for on your behalf (called ‘disbursements’ or ‘third-party costs’), for example, crematorium or cemetery fees, or a newspaper announcement about the death
  • local authority burial or cremation fees

Funeral directors may list all these costs in their quotes.
