Welcome to The Lindley Group Practice

Mission Statement: "To provide consistent, high quality, patient centred care"


With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.




Further to the Governments announcement with regards to the relaxation of Covid restrictions from Monday 19 July 2021,  we want to update you as to how the surgery will be functioning from then:

We have done a full health and safety assessment of our building and considering there are high levels of Covid in the community, at the current time, we will not be changing our working model.  This is due to the fact that we are currently seeing Covid positive patients at the Practice who require assessment and care.

  • Therefore, the surgery door will remain locked with the use of the intercom
  • Patients who have been risk assessed will be allowed in to the waiting room
  • All patients will be required to attend surgery wearing a mask unless exempt
  • Appointments will only be booked by phone or on line (if you do not have online access, please contact reception).


  • Thank you for your ongoing patience and understanding during the Covid Pandemic.  Until we have further guidance,  the surgery door will remain locked and only opened for people who have been requested to attend the surgery for a face to face appointment. 
  • Most appointments are telephone appointments currently.  This is to ensure the safety of patients and staff as we cannot maintain social distancing within the surgery building.   If you are wanting to book an appointment please DO NOT attend the surgery.
  • Ways of accessing our services:    Phoning the surgery /  online booking/  E Consult
  • Please also be aware that all appointments will be booked as a telephone consultation.  It is very important that you are available to answer your phone for your consultation. If deemed necessary, the GP or Nurse will arrange a face to face appointment.
  • Face to Face appointments -  We ask that all patients who have an arranged face to face appointment, that they attend wearing their own face mask or face covering.  We are unable to provide masks to patients.
  • Prescription Requests -  As Monday 13th July 2020, the way to order repeat prescriptions will revert back to the normal way,  this is either via online, or by post.  This is to free up phone lines for patients making appointments.
  • E-Consult is a great way to access services at the Practice (in working hours 8am - 6.30pm),  whether its an administrative question or for medical advice.  It can also be used to obtain self help advice.  It saves you time waiting on the phone.  You can access it by clicking on the banner above,  it is simple to use and all queries will be dealt with by the end of the next working day.   Try it! 
  • You can help us by ensuring we have your up to date contact details and asking our receptionists about online access so you can see your results and request prescriptions.
  • Any sick note requests can be sent
  • Complaints -  This is an extremely busy time for us whilst we concentrate on the response to Covid19 cases and other urgent medical matters.  We hope to provide the best service we can to patients as always.   We also recognise that things can go wrong and patients feel the need to complain.  We would like to advise that patients are still able to raise concerns/complains in the current situation, and we will try our best to manage these as quickly as we can, however please note that responses may be delayed.

Please bear with us at this time and understand our phone lines are extra busy.

Social Media Zero Tolerance Policy

Following activity on Social Media where patients of Lindley Group Practice have posted derogatory comments about the practice and some of our staff; we now have a Social Media Zero Tolerance Policy in place.

If any such posts are brought to our attention they could be viewed as a potential breakdown in the doctor-patient professional relationship, and may result in the individual being removed from our list.

We may contact the patients involved and invite them to have a discussion with the practice manager or one of the GP Partners to explore any issues they may have.

We welcome all feedback as it gives us the opportunity to review the services that we provide and, where necessary or appropriate, make changes or improvements.

We would ask that rather than posting derogatory or hurtful comments about the practice or any of our staff on social media, please speak to us about this or put your comments to us in writing giving us the opportunity to respond.

Posting derogatory or offensive comments online can cause unwarranted distress to our practice members and staff.

They may also cause other patients to delay or dissuade them from presenting to the surgery to received medical treatment.



From Monday 9th November 2020, our phone lines now open at 8am Monday to Friday. The closing time remains unchanged.


Our reception are experiencing significant increased call demand and ask that patients only contact us if absolutely necessary. We ask that patients use online access to their medical records for results, to order prescriptions and use other services such as Pharmacists, Opticians, Dentists and  To obtain online access to your medical record, please contact reception.

We understand the pandemic is a stressful time for us all and request your patience during this busy time, we are taking calls as quickly and efficiently as possible.  However verbal abuse towards staff will not be tolerated and will result in removal from the practice list.
