Providing lifelong care that is: safe, effective & dependable - for all of our community.


August 2020 - In order to keep our patients safe, the surgery is continuing to operate a triage model of care.  Once your care needs have been assessed by a clinician - either by phone or by reviewing your online consultation - please be assured that you will be offered a face-to-face appointment if the clinician feels that your care cannot be handled over the phone. 

Please use Online Consult - This is a new service for all NHS GP Practices and our reception team can walk you through how to use it.

Further to recent Government Guidance on wearing face masks, please see document from Worcestershire & Herefordshire LMC, stating that our GP's are not in a position to provide patients with exemption letters.  There is more information about this in our NEWS section of this website.
