Noticeboard

Have we got your number?  Make sure we've got your most up to date mobile telephone numbers to receive our free text reminder service for appointments.


Named GP - All patients registered with us are allocated a named GP. This GP is responsible for co-ordinating your care and developing care plans should you ever need one. You do not need to see this doctor for all appointments, any GP can see or treat you.  If you would like to find out who your named GP is please ask one of our Reception Team.


Warning: We have been informed that a number of elderly patients have been contacted over a telephone scam. The patients have reported being contacted by telephone by a company claiming to be the NHS. The company are attempting to make an appointment to visit the patients’ home and assess them for a long term condition – they seem to know which long term condition the patients have, but we are unsure if this is guesswork. They are also asking if they live alone.
Please double check with the surgery before making any appointments.


Get Online Access - Order prescriptions, book and cancel appointments, view your medical record, update your details.


Stop smoking clinic - being held at the surgery every Thursday morning from 9th April - for appointments please speak to our Reception Team.

This is a new and innovative GP service.  The service opened on 1st November 2009 and provides a walk in service (drop in) to non registered patients for minor illnesses and a full primary care service to those patients who wish to register with us. 

The centre is fully accessible to disabled people. The entrance, waiting area, consulting rooms and toilets are all suitable for wheelchair access.  There is car parking available on site free of charge and disabled bays are located by the entrances.  Chaperones are available upon request and translating services can be provided.

Serving You

The practice is staffed by a highly qualified and skilled team of GP's and nurses. Our nurse practitioners are highly trained and offer appointments and prescribe medication to deal with minor illnesses such as coughs, colds and flu, chest infections, asthma attacks, diabetes, tonsillitis, earache, sore throats, eye infections, skin disorders and childhood illnesses. They are also able to offer advice on healthy lifestyle, well woman/man issues, health education, family planning, and advice on medication.  Our Practice Nurse is available for appointments for registered patients for blood tests, childhood immunisations, travel health, healthy lifestyle, women's health, chronic conditon advice and checks. 

Clear Information

We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.

Partners in Care

Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
