In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you wish.



Please note that we have now introduced Call Recording on all telephone calls for monitoring and training purposes from the 18th December 2017.



   We are now back up and running with our on line services!

   If you wish to join up to our on line services please speak with our reception staff who will be happy to help and advise you.

 All of our patients will be allocated a named GP who will be responsible for your overall care at the Practice.
Please contact the Practice if you wish to know who this is.
Should you have a preference as to which GP this is then the Practice will make all reasonable efforts to accomodate this request. 




We are very keen to help our patients improve on self help and hope the following information will offer some guidance and insight into that
