Welcome to The Uplands Medical Practice website, where you will find useful information about our surgery, our services, and links to local health information. 

Our friendly practice team aims to give you the highest quality care and help you as quickly as possible. It’s extremely busy for all GP practices right now so, please bear with us and continue to be kind to our staff as we try to get to you.

Visiting the practice

Please continue to wear a mask if you are asked to visit the practice for an appointment and keep a safe distance from others. This keeps other vulnerable patients safe and ensures our practice team stays well and is here to help you.

Need a flu or COVID-19 vaccination?

It’s never too late to book your flu or COVID-19 vaccinations. Check eligibility and book an appointment locally here.

Making an appointment

Most appointments are carried out by telephone or video where safe to do so. Telephone appointments are convenient, we can help more patients quicker, and many patients say they prefer it. You will always be offered a face to face appointment if there is a clinical need. Read more about the way we do appointments here.

Please continue to #BeKind

Demand for appointments is extremely high across all GP practices right now. We understand how frustrating and worrying it can be if you are unwell or waiting for further treatment, but please continue to be kind to our team as they try their best to help everyone under difficult circumstances. 

Violence and aggression towards our staff are never acceptable. Anyone who uses abusive language or threatening behaviour towards a practice team member will be refused care plus further action where necessary. Read our full policy

Monthly staff training

The practice closes between 1pm and 3.30pm every second Thursday of the month for mandatory staff training. This helps us stay up to date and improve patient care and experience.

If you need urgent medical help during this time, telephone our practice number as usual, and you will be directed to the local GP service line for advice.
