Important message to all our patients

When you first joined the surgery you were registered under a specific GP at the practice. The government have now decided all patients should know which GP they are registered with. To pass this information on to you, we will be using any means possible:- face to face - text - email - letter etc. This is simply an administrative task and does not change anything for you as you are still able to continue seeing the GP of your choice.

Appointments - Help us to help you

 106  Patients did not attend for their appointments in August. This is a massive waste of resources and wasted clinician time.  Please make every effort to attend your appointment or remember to cancel in time for us to offer the slot to someone else.

Telephone Appointments are available for minor queries or reviews if you do not need to be physically examined.

Use your Pharmacy for minor ailments

Remember your local pharmacist is trained to treat minor ailments such as coughs and colds, blood pressure checks, constipation, rashes / skin problems and headaches etc. Please ask at your local pharmacy.


We are now sending you appointment reminders with a cancel option, clinic invites and blood results  by SMS text.

Make sure we have your current mobile telephone number and email address. If you do not wish to receive texts you must OPT OUT, please let reception know.
