From April 2019 the practice will close at 1pm on the first or second Thursday of each month, future dates are listed under our opening times.
With effect from 10th November 2015, NHS 111 will be the free to call out of hours service for urgent, but not life threatening, 999 health issues. Patients will need to dial them directly on 111 and will no longer be able to ring the surgery number to be diverted directly to Go to Doc. This is a freephone number.
The Practice is required by the Government to allocate all patients a named accountable GP. Patients will be notified of their named GP at the first appropriate interaction with the practice. This does not prevent you from seeing any doctor in the practice. Your named GP WILL NOT be available at all times and you may need to see an alternative doctor.
