The Culverhay Surgery
We are a group practice providing traditional family medicine to a high standard in our own purpose-built surgery.Our website has been designed to provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been built with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or booking an appointment.

Dr Pritchard announces his retirement in May 2016
As many of you know Dr Pritchard has been absent from the practice on a sabbatical for the last 6 months. It is with sadness that he has decided to retire in May this year, and will not therefore return to the practice as a partner. Dr Pritchard has worked at the Culverhay Surgery for the last 26 years and he will be missed greatly by all of us at the surgery.
He has however agreed to work on an ad hoc locum basis at the surgery for the next year, so many of you will still see him around.
Dr Mark Porter, who is currently an Associate GP with the Culverhay Surgery, will become a partner in May this year. Dr Pippa Munro, Dr Nicola Thurston, Dr Grace Thompson and Dr Sophie Russell will continue to work as Associate GPs for the surgery.
Patients of the Culverhay Surgery can now book and cancel appointments and also order repeat prescriptions securely online using 'SystmOnline'. which is a web-based module provided by our computer supplier TPP. There is also now a free SystmOnline App for iPhones and iPads.
You will need to register to use 'SystmOnline' at the practice where you will be supplied with a username and first password (which you can then update after your first log-in). When registering you will need to provide photographic ID to verify your identity for security purposes.
