Please note that our Surgeries will be closed on Bank Holiday Monday 27 August 2018.  Should you need to see a Doctor during this time please call the surgery no. and you will be put through to the GP collaborative.  You could also telephone 111 for advice. 

Please only telephone 999 in a genuine medical emergency. 

Care Navigation - coming soon!

Over the coming months you will notice your Receptionist asking you for a brief outline of your problem when you call to make an appointment, it’s not because they are nosey!  This new way of working is about offering you more choice and enabling you to see other Specialists outside the practice too.  This option will often be quicker and you may not need to see the GP each time.  The choice is always yours though and you will never be refused the option to book a GP appointment! For more information click here

Clinics & Services

Chronic Diseases

We are keen to support patients with longer term diseases or conditions, such as:district_nurse.jpg

  • Heart Disease
  • Atrial Fibrillation
  • High Blood Pressure (hypertension)
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Epilepsy
  • Asthma
  • Lung Disease (COPD)
  • Chronic Kidney Disease
  • Depression
  • Cancer
  • Dementia
  • Mental Health

With most of these conditions, you will be offered a review with a nurse (and, where appropriate, a doctor) at least once a year. This review aims to ensure you are receiving the most appropriate treatment for you and gives you the chance to discuss any issues with the nurse or doctor.

The review is normally offered within a few weeks of your birthday; please feel free to contact a practice nurse if you think you are due for a review and haven’t heard from us.

Family Planning & Contraception

The practice offers a full range of advice and provision of contraceptives, including longer acting reversible contraceptives, such as implants (‘Nexplanon’), IUCDs (intra-uterine contraceptive devices), Mirena coils and Depo Provera injections.

Please make an appointment to discuss with the family planning practice nurse or a doctor.
