Pharmacies open during August Bank Holiday


We are delighted to announce that Professor Amanda Howe has been chosen as the next President of the Royal College of General Practitioners.  Amanda has worked at Bowthorpe since 2002, as well as playing a major role as the Professor of Primary Care in the Norwich Medical School.  In her new role at RCGP she will continue to champion excellent general practice, and support its need for adequate resources and development to meet all our patients' needs. 

There is a downside - this new role will have a substantial impact on Amanda's already limited appointment availability, as she will be travelling to RCGP business at least 2 days a week.  We have decided that the safest way to use her limited time here is to help with teaching and training; this means that, for the immediate future, she will no longer offer prebooked and online appointments.  Patients for whom she has been the main doctor are advised to get to know at least one other doctor as their main doctor, and Amanda will help with any handover that is needed.  This new arrangement will start from September 2019.   Please ask at the surgery if you have any questions.

cervical screening


It's estimated that cervical screening saves around 5,000 lives each year, but cervical screening is at a 20-year low, with one in four women in the UK not attending their appointment.

Everyone with a cervix, which is most women and many trans people, between the ages of 25 and 64 are invited to attend cervical screening every three or four five years, depending on their age.

Cervical screening only last five minutes.  So don't ignore your invite, and if you miss your last screening, book an appointment with the practice today.

GP online services gives patients the option to book appointments, request repeat prescriptions and view their GP records, using their computer, tablet or smartphone rather than having to phone or visit their practice.

Online services complement the existing ways patients can access appointments, prescriptions and their records.  Our practices already have the facility to offer online access to records and transactional services for our patients.

If you are not already registered for GP online services please let a member of the practice team know you would like to use this service.
