Patient Notice 

You may or may not be aware that there is a shortage of GP’s and obtaining cover is extremely difficult.

We are experiencing difficulties getting cover and for this reason we ask that you be patient and understanding if we cannot offer you an appointment straight away.

If you have an urgent medical issue that needs assessed we will attempt to see you as soon as possible but ‘Routine’ issues will have to wait for the next available appointment.

Thank you for your consideration in this matter

Asthma Reviews Just Got Easier!

We appreciate that it is not always easy to attend appointments for ‘routine’ reviews especially if you are feeling well. However, it is important that we do regularly review you and your conditions. Asthma is one of those conditions that we do need to continually check. For your convenience, we have developed an on-line questionnaire that can be completed via our website (Home > Further Information > Asthma Review) Please complete this questionnaire and submit it to us. Once we receive this we will forward it to our Practice Nurse for review and further management.

Survey Results Are In!!

We recently undertook our patient experience survey and 97% of our patients who were surveyed stated that they are extremely satisfied with our practice and would recommend us to someone who has just moved to the area.

We received comments from patients and would like to reassure everyone that we do take these comments on board and will make appropriate changes to our systems. A full summary of the results are available on the Further Information Link.

Thank you to everyone who completed a survey.
