Welcome to Queenhill Medical Practice
"We are making the switch"
Why have we upgraded?
There are many reasons why we took the decision to move to the new system, some of the main ones being;
• Improved data security
• Increased capacity
• More user friendly and efficient
• Improved functionality, allowing us to manage your healthcare needs more easily
• Ongoing development not available with our existing system
Please see EMIS Web Switch poster available for you.
INFORMATION REGARDING CYBER ATTACK:
We would like to inform you, that we have not been effected by the recent cyber attack. We did however follow the correct protocol that we were told by the CCG to close down our systems and NHS mail until further information was gathered.
All services are back to normal, thank you for your patience.

NHS IS HIT BY LARGE SCALE CYBER ATTACK, AS COMPUTER SYSTEMS AND PHONES IN HOSPITALS ACROSS ENGLAND GO DOWN.
Hospitals across England have been hit by a large-scale cyber-attack, the NHS has confirmed, which has locked staff out of their computers and forced many trusts to divert emergency patients.
The IT systems of NHS sites across the country appear to have been simultaneously hit, with a pop-up message demanding a ransom in exchange for access to the PCs. NHS England said it was aware of the problem and would release more details soon
WE NEED YOUR HELP
Have you ever wondered why you can’t get an appointment at the surgery, or why you cannot get the appointment you want?
One reason is the number of patients who book appointments, do not turn up and do not cancel their booked appointment
If your appointment is no longer needed telephone the surgery to cancel the appointment so someone else in need can have an appointment
Did you know that this surgery is online for appointment booking and repeat prescriptions?
Or ask the receptionist in surgery for an application form when your are next in, ID will be required
Have better access to your surgery at anytime of the day, wherever you are!
Book and cancel your appointments
Order your prescriptions
