Welcome to Royton & Crompton Family Practice

Royton & Crompton Family Practice are continuing to follow the Government Guidelines on surgeries 

In these unprecedented times demand for appointments is at its highest ever, the practice is looking at ways in which to make it easier for our patients to get through in different ways.

If you have not already registered for online access please follow the link

"GP Online Access" as you can do many things without having to call the practice.

The practice is receiving over 1800 calls per day many of which are COVID vaccine related. The practice will be in touch with any patient who is due the vaccine so please try not to call as this blocks the lines for those needing medical care.

Opting out of sharing your confidential patient information:

2) Follow the link below to change your preferences online with NHS Digital (Opt Out Type 2). If you do not have internet access, please complete the 'Register your Type 2 Opt Out Preferences' form and return it to NHS Digital (as explained within the form).
