The Practice as from March 2014 has an online appointments system that patients can use.

Please note this service is currently not available for under 16's due to safeguarding issues.
St Peters Street Medical Practice will now be sending out text messages to registered patients to remind you of appointments that you have booked at the Practice.
The reason we are doing this new service is to help to cut down on the big rate of DNA’s (Did Not Attend) at the practice. By sending a text message to registered patients it will serve as a reminder of an appointment or give the opportunity for the patient to call the surgery to cancel or rearrange.
The Practice will also be using this service as reminders to patients who are in At Risk Groups such as Asthma, Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and Coronary heart disease to remind them that they are due a review and to call the surgery to book an appointment.
You can cancel your appointment via text messaging by entering the word 'cancel' and this will automatically update the computer. No other text message responses are logged, so please be aware that you can not change an appointment via this method.
Patients may opt out of this service at any time by contacting the practice and the practice will not send you any reminders.
You may be entitled to a voucher which you can get from any pharmacy.
You can get medication free in the same way as you do from your GP provided you are exempt from prescription charges.
Please access the vouchers at your local pharmacy for the following minor ailments and the Pharmacist will advise you accordingly.
We wish to provide a first class service for our patients and in order to do this and to have time for clinics and services traditionally offered in hospitals, it is no longer viable or efficient (or in the majority or cases medically necessary) to do a home visit.
A surgery consultation is beneficial to the patient because of the ability to make use of equipment and diagnostic aids.
We will continue to visit the following people:
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is evidence that you are ill and unable to work for a set period of time or in some cases fit to return to work with amended duties, altered hours, a phased returned to work or work place adaptations.
Dentist and hospital Doctors can also supply you with medical certificates for your employer.
For more information on FIT NOTES see the DirectGov website (where this information was sourced).
