*** Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic we are facing increased uncertainty about staffing. As a result, we are operating an "on the day booking" system. PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY UNLESS INVITED BY A CLINICIAN. The number of routine telephone slots available each day will depend on the number of staff we have available.
We are now also unable to accept Prescription requests at the Practice. Please order all repeat prescriptions online or via your pharmacy. We recommend the NHS App, which is quick and easy to set up yourself at home.
Government advice is changing regularly. See the latest on self isolating here. You do not need to contact 111 to inform them if you are self isolating. Please only contact 111 using their online service, if you have symptoms that you are not able to manage at home, or that persist for more than 7 days. Only call the 111 telephone line if you cannot access the online service. If you are in one of the vulnerable groups, see specific guidance on social distancing here.***

Visit us on Facebook
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.
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. You can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a REPEAT PRESCRIPTION and MAKE OR CANCEL AN APPOINTMENT.
Partners in Care
Our 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.
Our surgery is accessible to patients using a wheelchair, with car parking spaces available for disabled drivers. All consulting rooms are on the ground floor and are fitted with ‘rise and fall’ examination couches. We have a loop hearing system in reception and a portable loop for patients to use during consultation. However, if you feel that you may need further assistance when you visit us, please let the receptionist know when you make your appointment so that we can make any arrangements necessary to make your visit as comfortable as possible. It is also useful for us to know if you have any hearing or visual problems.
**Patients at our practice can now register to use the official NHS App on mobile and tablet devices. Visit www.nhs.uk/nhsapp or search "NHS App" in your app store**
