With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
Please note that from next week, when you contact the surgery to book an appointment with a GP or ACP, our reception team will now offer you the choice of a face to face or telephone appointment. However, we will still be unable to confirm a set time for telephone appointments as these will still be triaged throughout the day in clinical priority in case we need to book you in for a face to face later the same day. Asthma and COPD reviews will also return to face to face appointments.
We are happy we can return to something close to our pre-pandemic system and hope this change offers more flexibility for our patients. As a lot of our patients are aware, we currently have a limited capacity and number of appointments and we are doing our very best to increase capacity due to the high demand and stress in primary care.
Our reception team have recently been receiving more verbal abuse than ever before for circumstances that are out of their control. We would like to remind patients that our Reception team do their very best they can in difficult circumstances and we will not tolerate any form of abuse towards them.

Please note the surgery will be closed from 1:30pm on Wednesday 6th April for planned staff training. If you require medical assistance during this time, please contact 111 or 999 in the event of an emergency. Thank you.
