Welcome to Rise Park Surgery.
Rise Park Surgery serves the whole of Rise Park as well as areas of Top Valley and Bestwood Village. Our team includes six GPs, three nurses, one health care assistant, two phlebotomists as well as our practice manager, administration and reception staff.
We offer a full general practice service and run specialist clinics for children and pregnant women, diabetes and asthma sufferers and for patients needing minor surgery.
Please contact Nottingham City Commissioning Group on (0115) 8831820 for services we do not provide.
At Rise Park Surgery, we aim to treat all our patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence.

Surgery closure for Staff Training
The Surgery will be closed on Tuesday 4th November 2014 between 12.30pm – 5.00pm for training purposes.
We regret to inform you that there will be NO baby clinic at the surgery on this date.
Other baby clinics in the area are at:-
Wednesday 9.30am-11.30am at the Westglade Sure Start Building
Thursday 1pm-3pm at the Southglade Access Centre.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
New contractual requirements from 1st April 2014 state that GP practices should make available a statement of intent in relation to GP2GP (the electroninc transfer of patient records).
The Government requires that all practices utilise the electronic GP2GP facility for the transfer of all patient records between practices, when a patient registers or de-registers (not for temporary registration), or have publicised plans in place to achieve this by 31st March 2015.
Rise Park Surgery intends to start using this facility from 5th November 2014 for all transfers of patient records unless there is an issue with the receiving practice's computer system which does not allow or provide such transfers.
Rise Park Surgery will be offering eligible patients the opportunity of a flu vaccination. We will be running 3 drop-in clinics on:-
Saturday 27 September 2014
Saturday 4 October 2014
Saturday 25 October 2014
Between 9am and 11.30am
All eligible patients will receive a letter of invitation in late August and early September.
Rise Park Surgery are pleased to announce that we are now able to offer patients the ability to order repeat prescriptions via this website as well as booking appointments on line.
To register for the website please bring one form of photo ID (i.e. passport, driving license) and one utility bill showing your current address (no more than 6 months old) and reception will provide you with a user name and password.

NEW COMPUTER SYSTEM
In January 2014 we changed computer system so we would be very grateful if you could be patient with us for a little while longer whilst we get used to it.
We are confident that the new system will benefit both staff and patients in the long run as it will enable us to offer more automated services via the website; for example you can now order repeat prescriptions online as well as book appointments. Another benefit of the new system is that you can check yourself in for your appointment at the surgery on the 'Automated Arrivals Screen' without having to wait in a queue at reception. We are also able to share information more easily with other health organisations that may be treating you (please see information above regarding information sharing).
How information about you helps provide better healthcare ...
Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS with the aim of improving the services offered for everyone. This information along with your postcode and NHS number but not your name, are sent to a secure system where it can be linked with other health information. This allows those planning NHS services or carrying out medical research to use information from different parts of the NHS in a way which does not identify you.
YOU HAVE A CHOICE - If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening please let us know here at the the surgery.
Please call into the surgery for a leaflet which gives more details or alternatively more information can be found at http://www.nhs.uk/caredata.
Please help us to help you when telephoning the surgery...
We want all our patients to be able to get through when they need to and avoid the frustration of an engaged telephone line!
We therefore ask that unless your problem is urgent and you need an appointment that morning please phone after 9.30am. Thank you.
New System For Urgent Appointments
As of 6th June 2012, urgent, 'on the day' appointments will be organised after a telephone consultation with a GP to assess the urgency of your problem.
If you think you need an urgent appointment please call the surgery as you would normally on 0115 927 2525. A receptionist will take your name, telephone number and a brief description of the nature of your problem if you are happy and able to give this information at the time (this will simply help the GP prioritise the calls).
Routine appointments can be booked up to 4 weeks in advance. If you can no longer make an appointment please let us know so we can offer it to someone else.
