Welcome to Rainworth Surgery
Dr Sue Huggard has now retired, our heartfelt good wishes for a long, healthy & happy retirement.
We have a new Doctor joining the surgery as of 1st April 2019. Dr Phil Parker is looking forward to working here at Rainworth and we wish him well, all the staff will help him to settle in.
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.

Thank you to those patients who have completed the Friends & Family Survey.
We received 47 responses for March 2018, 43 Extremely Likely and 3 Likely to recommend us to their Family or Friends. 1 Patient was unsure. We have therefore achieved 98% overall.
Thank you to all the patients who have completed the survey, we appreciate your comments.

Registering for Online Access
Please see our reception staff and register for Online Access - this will allow you to book appointments, request repeat prescriptions, see your summary care record which includes your name, date of birth, address, telephone number which you can then check for accuracy and let us know if something needs changing. The summary care record also includes your repeat medication and recent acute medication, your allergies and sensitivities. You will also able to apply for access to your coded record.
The government set practices a target of 25% of patients to be registered for Online Access by 31st March 2017, with this target increasing this year. Please help us to achieve our target.
A number of SMS messages asking patients to register for this have also been sent out. You will need to come to Reception and bring photo ID and proof of address ie utility bill, in order that we can generate your User ID and password.
It is really easy to access our online services via this web site and book, or cancel, your appointment and order your repeat prescription. We have a large number of GP appointments available to book online each day and you will be able to book, or cancel, at a time to suit you.
PLEASE DO NOT BOOK ONLINE APPOINTMENTS FOR CONTRACEPTION DEVICES OR INJECTIONS, THESE APPOINTMENTS SHOULD BE BOOKED EITHER AT THE RECEPTION DESK OR BY TELEPHONE.
Thank you for helping us achieve our target, our reception staff will look forward to helping you with your online access requests.
Did Not Attend (DNA) Appointments
We feel it is important to let patients know how many appointments are wasted each month by those failing to attend, or cancel, their appointments. In February 2019 there were 23 patients who failed to arrive to see a GP and 31 patients who failed to arrive to see a Nurse or HCA.
In total this was over 10 hours of appointment time lost during the month. We hope you can see and appreciate how difficult this makes it to plan for the future when this keeps happening.
If you have made an appointment, please KEEP IT or CANCEL IT. Thank you
Get Well, Keep Well
From 14 February 2019 we will cease taking prescription requests on the telephone. Please order online, through the pharmacy, or use the automated order line by selecting option 3 on the telephone. You can also post your request in the Prescription Box situated in the waiting room.
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
