New Clinical System
We are very grateful for the ongoing patience and support of all our patients whilst we change over to a better and more modern clinical system. All our staff have embraced a huge and steep learning curve and your tolerance through this is hugely appreciated.
If you want to book appointments or order prescriptions online please ask at reception to be registered with our new system. Please bring some photographic ID (e.g. passport, driving licence or bus pass) to help our receptionists process your application more quickly.
You will be able to email prescription requests direct to the surgery until your online access for prescriptions has been restored. The email address for prescription requests is firstname.lastname@example.org

SIGN UP TO SAFETY
In November 2017 for his sabbatical, Dr Pascoe-Watson will be participating in a sponsored cycle from Vietnam to Cambodia on behalf of The Cure Parkinson's Trust Charity, to raise awareness and fundraise for this very worthy cause, joining a like-minded group of amateur cyclists now known as The Cyclopaths. Any money raised will go to the charity, Dr P-W is paying his own expenses. You can find out more details by visiting The Cyclopaths page on Facebook.
If you would be kind enough to donate some money it would be very much appreciated, and you can do this via reception or via the Virgin Money Giving website below. http://virginmoneygiving.com/team/cyclopaths15
From Jim Pascoe-Watson of The Cyclopaths:
I am not a cyclist. I never had any aspirations to become a "MAMIL". But look at me now... Clad in lycra I can be found pedalling (slowly) around the Cotswolds trying to get fit enough to join this group. I have been inspired to participate in this amazing adventure by the great work being done by The Cure Parkinson's Trust. The courage and positivity shown by my friend Alison and numerous patients of mine over the years on being diagnosed with PD is extraordinary and humbling and I would like to contribute to the fundraising efforts currently underway to find more effective treatments and a cure for this chronic and debilitating disease. Four patients in particular have touched me over the past two years: Two who cope remarkably well with their symptoms with amazing fortitude and two who have sadly passed away within the past few months. It is in their memory and equally importantly as a tribute to their loved ones, who are under such immense stress as carers and are the unsung heroes who enable people with PD to stay at home and live fulfilling lives, that I am proud to ride with the Cyclopaths and raise as much money as possible for The Cure Parkinson's Trust.
