Practice News and Notices
  • The practice is aware that some patients have had difficulty in getting through on the telephone recently. This is acutely problematic on Mondays. We would like to assure patients that we are working hard to find a solution and are currently in the process of installing a system which will enable patients to book telephone consultations 24/7. Further information will be available shortly.

  • Patients may be aware that General Practice is under constant pressure to provide a growing number of services to patients with a decrease in resources.  As a result of this we have had to make some change to the way we offer our appointments. Please see the winter newsletter for further information. The newsletter is available in reception and on the newsletter page of our website.

  • The practice is pleased to advise that telephone consultations can now be booked online. Please collect a registration form from reception (photographic evidence of identity will be required).
