Noticeboard

Peacock Surgery is continuing to experience high levels of sickness and staff absence. We are working hard to try to maintain services. We respectfully ask for your understanding at this difficult time.

FACE COVERINGS/MASKS: If you have an appointment with us or need to attend Peacock Surgery,  we ask that you understand it is important that you wear a face covering at all times too, when in the surgery, despite this ruling now being relaxed. This is for your safety and the safety of other patients and colleagues in the surgery.

Our team will continue to wear face masks and other PPE as required, to protect our patients and our colleagues and prevent possible infections.

A patients guide to GP services.

It’s Your Practice: A patient guide to GP services has been put together by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) for patients. 

This guide has been produced as part of the RCGP’s aim to build stronger relationships between you and your doctors and encourage the involvement and inclusion of you in your own care.

The guide provides helpful information on all aspects of using GP services: from finding and choosing a practice and how to get the most out of a GP consultation to accessing health records and understanding patients’ rights and responsibilities.

Apple and StethoscopeIt is split into several sections including:

  • General Practice explained
  • Choosing the right practice for you
  • Registering with a GP practice
  • Seeing your GP – consultations
  • Seeing your GP – the next steps
  • After your GP consultation
  • Your health record
  • Your rights and responsibilities as a patient
  • Get involved with your practice


The publication is part of a push by the NHS as a whole to encourage you to understand how you can get the most out of primary care – which also includes how you can become more involved in monitoring your own health.
