For more information regarding our 'Privacy Notice' please click the 'Sharing your information' tab on the right.

As a training practice we strive for the highest quality service possible.

In the last month the surgeries had 86 missed appointments, including 49 Doctors appointments, equating to over 13 hours.

Appointments are limited and every missed appointment has an adverse affect on our ability to see patients as quickly as possible. If you are unable to make your appointment please call to cancel, thankyou.

Our surgeries

The practice began in Dr Jones' home on 1.2.1985. As the patient numbers grew, it progressed to the two purpose built premises, which opened in Pitstone on 1.7.1991 and Edlesborough on 1.4.1992. Today the practice is continuing to grow and develop and currently we have just over 7500 patients.

Medicine

When ordering medicines please be aware: As a practice we are almost 10% overspent on our drug budget- this makes us the worst in Buckinghamshire - this cannot carry on and so we ask for your understanding that we cannot provide prescriptions for medicines available to buy from a pharmacy. This includes seasonal allergies such as hayfever, indigestion remedies, treatments for worms and headlice. Also if you are given a hospital prescription you MUST please take this to the hospital pharmacy.
