Welcome to the Kingstone Surgery practice website. We hope you enjoy looking around. We are a rural general practice situated just south west of Hereford, near the Welsh border, looking after approximately 4250 patients with two partners, two assistants and thirteen attached staff. Please use the links at the top and side to navigate around the site. Comments would be welcomed.
We are based in a purpose built surgery that was opened in 2002 and subsequently was given a Civic Trust award. The building houses four consulting rooms, a spacious waiting room, treatment room, dispensary, and administrative facilities. Designed by the Smith Roberts Partnership, its light, airy and innovative design is enjoyed by patients and staff.
The practice aims to provide personal traditional family medicine of the highest standard, whilst endeavouring to cope with the changes and demands of the new NHS. We are fortunate in having a superb team to work with, and were awarded Investor in People status in 2005, which was renewed in 2008 and 2011.
Sr Pamela Pattenden is leaving us at the beginning of August as one of our practice nurses and is moving to South Wales. We are delighted to welcome Sr Sally Bounds as part of our team. Sally lives in Allensmore.
|Please note that we are now operating an entirely new system for online repeat presciptions using EMIS access (https://patient.emisaccess.co.uk/) . If you wish to use the service you will need to notify us at the surgery that you are interested. We will give you an ID and PIN number that will allow you to register on the site. It will also permit you to book some of the available doctor appointments online.
If there is a problem with one of your requests then a message will be sent to your emis access home page which you will need to log on to see.
Since the letter template was made, EMIS have changed their registration screen. Please put the information we have given you into the boxes below as shown. If you have problems after this stage, please use the help screens on the Emis access website.

SCREENING FOR CANCER
You may know that we are now becoming more aware of some of the problems associated with looking for cancers such as breast and prostate in those who have no symptoms. There is now a new section on the website where you can find out more information.
