 Please notify reception if you are happy for us to contact you via Letter, Telephone Call or Text.

 Failing to do this could affect your health care as Rainworth Surgery is legally required to work within the new regulation and requires explicit consent from our patients for specific forms of contact.

Welcome to Rainworth Surgery

Thank you to those patients who have completed the Friends & Family Survey.

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.


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 January 2020 there were 32 patients who failed to arrive to see a GP and 85 patients who failed to arrive to see a Nurse or HCA.

In total this was over 23 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

Prescription Ordering

From 14 February 2019 we ceased 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.
