Please note that the surgery will be CLOSED for Protected Learning Time (PLT) on the afternoon of Wednesday 5th July. This dedicated training session allow GP practice staff the opportunity to close for the afternoon to learn about the most up to date information on particular subjects which underpin the key priorities for healthcare. Emergency medical care is available for those conditions that will not wait until the surgery re-opens. Please call 999 if your condition is life-threatening or 111 if you are unable to wait until the surgery re-opens.  Routine matters should wait until the surgery re-opens on Thursday 6th July at 8am. Sorry for an inconvenience this may cause.

If you have any queries/comments about any aspect of the services that we provide at the Surgery, Please fill out the form provided on the website.

patient surveyWe would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff. 

To help us with this, we are setting up a virtual patient representation group so that you can have your say. We will ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. We will contact you via email and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.

We aim to gather around a hundred patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.
