Hello and welcome to our website. We’ve packed it full of useful information in a very easy to use format with the added benefit of several online function.

URGENT PATIENT MESSAGE - FRIDAY 8TH APRIL

We have only 1 GP working in the Practice today due to illness so this has severely restricted our triage calls today.  Please do not contact us today if your request is NOT URGEN and can wait until Monday morning. Thank you for your understanding.

*SPRING BOOSTERS FOR PATIENTS OVER 75 YEARS*

The Practice will be contacting all those patients aged 75 years and over to attend for a Spring Booster in early May, providing it has been a minimum of 3 months since your previous vaccine.  It is hoped supplies of the vaccine will be available to be ordered after Easter and patients will then be invited to attend one of the clinics.

  • Please do not contact the surgery regarding these Booster Clinics as we will be getting in touch with all eligible patients in due course.

  • Clinics will be accessed via the Barn Road entrance as before and please remember that it is still a requirement to wear a mask in all health care premises. 

  • You will not be admitted to the Health Centre without a mask.
