The Surgery is in transition at the moment as the Partners have changed their roles in 2015; we are actively recruiting new Doctors but as the national press is reporting, there is a lack of GP candidates.
We are continuing to run normal surgeries with the support of locums, most of whom are attending regularly, and would ask you to bear with us while we try to bring new Doctors on board on a permanent basis.

Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results, and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, patient registrations, recalling patients for routine check-ups and dealing with with patient enquiries.
