Who are TPS?

The Telephone Preference Service (TPS) is a free service. It is the official central opt out register on which you can record your preference not to receive unsolicited sales or marketing calls. It is a legal requirement that all organisations (including charities, voluntary organisations and political parties) do not make such calls to numbers registered on the TPS unless they have your consent to do so.

 If someone keeps bothering you, make a complaint through this link


I've got an appointment, but I don't know what to say.

Some patients find it difficult to really express what they want to say.   As doctors and nurses, we understand this.    So - why not click the very simple and easy appointment guide below which will help you express what you really want to say.   Other patients have loved it.  We hop you do too.
