Welcome to Doctors Lane Surgery
Please be reminded that ALL patients who wish to see a doctor must first speak to a clinician by telephone to be triaged. If the clinician feels that you need to be seen face-to-face, they will arrange that with you directly. As such, we no longer operate a 'Walk-in' surgery, but ask you to contact us via telephone first.
With effect from the 3rd July 2023, we only accept telephone orders for medication between 2pm and 4pm each day.
Order prescriptions online
Please note that we only accept telephone orders for medication between 2pm and 4pm each day. This makes it much easier for patients with on-the-day clinical needs to get through to the practice to speak to a Doctor or a nurse. You can still drop your order off in person at the Surgery, or at Barton Post Office, but the quickest, and safest, way to order your medication is online via the NHS app or through SystmOnline
To register for SystmOnline, wou will need a unique username and password which must be collected in person. To register for the NHS app, download it onto your smart-device, and follow the steps.
As your GP practice, we have been asked by NHS England to provide you with access to your full medical record via the NHS app (and NHS website) if you have a suitable NHS login, from 31 October 2023. As a practice we have decided to ask your permission first, as this gives us a chance to check your understanding, and be sure access to your data is safe for you. We are aware that not everyone will want access to their full record on the internet at this time, and some patients may have concerns about their personal medical records being made available on their smartphones or online, especially if other people have access to their devices. If you already have this level of access, you will still have this. If you don’t have this level of access, but would like it, please contact the surgery, and we are happy to discuss this with you, and to provide this. Please visit this page for further information.
Consult a Doctor, nurse or other member of the practice team online. Please note that Online Consultations are only for routine, non-urgent queries. We will respond to you within two working days. If you have a concern that needs addressing the same day, or more urgently, please call the practice. Click here to try it.

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised, and the required disclosure is shown below. However it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice, and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice. The average pay for GPs working in DRS HODGSON AND KEAVNEY in the last financial year (ending 31st March 2021) was £64120 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 1 full time GPs, 2 part time GPs and 0 locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than 6 months
