This practice plans to offer the facility for patients to view online, export or print detailed coded information held in their own records from 31 March 2016.
These dates are subject to the necessary NHS GP systems and software being available to the practice.
This practice currently offers the facility for patients:
to book, view, amend, cancel and print appointments online
to order online, view and print a list of their repeat prescriptions for
drugs, medicines or appliances
to view online, export or print summary information from their record, relating to medications, allergies, adverse reactions and any other items agreed between the practice and individual patient
We will publicise and promote our online services to our practice’s patients through the practice website, practice waiting room leaflets, posters and the Patient Participation Group by 31 March 2016.
All patients now have a GP assigned to them. This GP is responsible for their overall care at the practice. If you wish to know who your named GP is, please ask a receptionist.
You remain registered at Prospect Surgery and are still able to make an appointment with any GP in the Practice.
If you have a preference for who you wish to have as your named GP, please let a member of staff know and we will endeavour to comply with your request.

The practice is involved in the training of senior medical students attached to Durham Medial School in Stockton. You may be asked for your permission for a student to be present during your consultation. If you would prefer NOT to have a student present during your consultation with the doctor or nurse simply let the receptionist know. Your decision will not affect your care.
If you require an interpreter to accompany you during your consultation, please advise the receptionist who will make the necessary arrangements. Please help us by giving as much notice as possible.
Please let a member of staff know if you are a carer. Carers are often “hidden” looking after a family member or helping a friend or neighbour with day to day tasks and may not see themselves as a carer.
We will be pleased to see anyone staying with you or visiting you if they require a doctor or nurse and are unable to get to their own medical practice due to distance.
If you have served as a member of the armed forces please make a member of staff aware.
