Keeping in touch

Have you provided AMP with your email address? More than 8,000 patients have, but we would love to include every eligible patient on our email database.

Email is such a convenient and quick way to communicate with patients, and it’s far cheaper than sending letters in the post.

Via email we can let you know about important new campaigns, e.g., winter 'flu jabs. We can also send you all our practice news via regular e-newsletters.

Please join our mailing list
If you have not told us your email address, and know other patients who haven’t, and you and they would be happy to receive practice emails to help them keep up to date with everything from Amherst, please let us know by clicking here.

Note: Email addresses are used solely for matters directly related to the patient and treated as confidential.
