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


November 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. 


Flu Vaccine for 50-64 year olds - We will be running a clinic on Saturday, 12th December to deliver flu vaccinations to all of our 50-64 year old patients.  Please call reception now to book an appointment.  


COVID-19 Vaccine - At the present time we are not able to say when the vaccine will be available for patients or how the roll out of the vaccine will be conducted.  As we learn more we will update this section of the website.

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.
