** Be Aware **

We'd like to inform you of the change you will face should you sign up to any payable online GP services that have recently been advertised on television (e.g.  This is different to the online access registration service that we offer at Bramblehaies Surgery.

These companies act as a GP practice and offer online GP consultations, prescription services and more.

Should you opt in and register on any of these websites it will trigger a new practice registration with NHS England. This, in turn will de-register/deduct you as a patient at Bramblehaies Surgery.

This will mean that any service (consultation, prescription etc) notes that are recorded will not be transferred to your current patient record at the practice.

Please ensure to check their terms and conditions prior to accepting any agreement.

Let your friends and family know.
