WE ARE ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS - see "How to register with the surgery"


All patients are reminded that, for safety reasons, a minimum of THREE WORKING DAYS (72 hours - not including weekends) is required for ALL orders of repeat medication. This ensures doctors and staff have adequate time to check the medication is right for you and is being safely used and prescribed. Also for safety reasons, we cannot accept medication orders by telephone. Please either fill in the order form on your prescription, fill in a form at the surgery or order online.


Don't be caught out by the flu this winter! There are warnings in the press that this winter may see a massive rise in the number of cases of flu in the UK, following a big rise in cases in Australia and New Zealand. Gold Street Surgery is inviting all potentially vulnerable patients to have a free flu jab. You are eligible to receive a free flu jab if you: 

  •  are 65 years of age or over   
  • are pregnant 
  • have certain long-term medical conditions 
  • are living in a long-stay residential care home or other long-stay care facility 
  • receive a carer's allowance, or you are the main Carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill 

For people "at risk" flu can be much more than just a "bad cold". It can cause severe illness and even death among vulnerable groups including older people, pregnant women and people with a serious underlying health condition. Certain people are also more likely to develop potentially serious complications of flu, such as bronchitis and pneumonia. These people are advised to have a flu jab each year.

For otherwise healthy people, flu can still be very unpleasant, although most people will recover within a week or two. Please ring the surgery on 01799 525325 to book an appointment. If you are seeing your GP about something else, they can also give you your flu jab while you're there (please mention it at the start of your appointment!).

The flu vaccine is also free on the NHS for:

  • children over the age of six months with a long-term health condition
  • children aged two and three on 31 August 2017 – that is, born between 1 September 2013 and 31 August 2015
  • children in reception class and school years one, two,  three and four

There is very limited parking at Gold Street Surgery, which is reserved for patients with mobility difficulties (while attending the surgery), doctors and surgery staff only. Access is also required at all times for Ambulances and urgent healthcare deliveries. Please help us by using the 285 space public car park next door off Fairycroft Road (Waitrose) instead. Patients and visitors to the surgery are reminded to take extra care at all times as there may be moving vehicles outside the surgery. There is no public right of way through the surgery site.

Please note that parking at Gold Street is entirely at the driver's risk. The surgery can accept no liability for any loss or damage to vehicles or their contents parked at Gold Street Surgery, however caused. Persons choosing to park at the surgery will be deemed to have accepted this. The Car Park is not open to the public outside surgery hours and there is no right of way through the surgery grounds. PLEASE TAKE EXTRA CARE IN ICY OR SNOWY CONDITIONS AS THE CAR PARK AND PATHS MAY BE SLIPPERY.

NHS staff should be able to come to work without fear of violence, abuse or harassment from patients or their relatives. In most cases, patients and their relatives are appreciative towards those who treat them but a minority of people are still abusive or violent towards staff. The NHS is committed to dealing with this problem and has a ‘zero tolerance’ attitude towards violence or aggressive behaviour. Gold Street Surgery unequivocally supports this policy. Offenders will usually be warned not to repeat their behaviour, but the surgery reserves the right to remove from its list without further warning repeat offenders or those who are physically or verbally violent towards staff, or who behave in a discriminatory manner..
