We hope that our website will provide clear and concise help and information to you. 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.
Winter Extended Access
We are making more appointments available for patients at this practice over the winter period; these will be available from now until the end of March 2018 with members of our clinical team.
We would also like you to consider using our Prescribing Nurse Practitioner rather than a GP. Our NP, can issue prescriptions and see children and adults for things such as chest infections, urinary tract infections, sore throats, ear ache, high temperature, sickness/diarrhoea, mastitis, eye problems, rashes/eczema, wrist/ankle/knee issues etc. The NP works alongside a GP so you can be seen by a GP if necessary. The NP clinics are available all day on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Appointments are available on the day (some are reserved for rapid access on the day) or in advance.
Flu Vaccination - it's not too late!
The Saturday clinics have been completed; if you were unable to make one of these, and are eligible for the 'flu vaccination (or shingles/pneumococcal vaccination) please book in with one of the nursing team members.

In 2017 we lost 1103 GP appointments (184 clinical hours /23 days) through patients not turning up or not cancelling their GP appointment. On average this works out to be 92 patients per month who we could have seen and represents a loss of 15 hours of GP appointment time every month. This is a reduction compared to 2016 figures, so a huge thank you to those who cancelled in advance.

Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
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 online patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
Disabled parking and access are available at both our surgeries.
