TRAINING DATES FOR 2018           

The surgery will be closed for training on the following days: 

 Thursday 15th March 2018   1pm - 6pm


The surgery and dispensary are open from:
8.30am - 1pm   &
2.00- 6pm    Mon-Friday.
Please telephone during these hours for an appointment.  The doctors will normally be available to speak to patients between 11.30-12pm and 3.15-3.45pm


We are making more appointments available for patients at this practice. Additional appointments can be booked from the end of January until the end of March 2018. This is because we know that there are times you want to be able to see a GP or nurse at short notice. We also know that over the winter lots of people have seasonal illnesses which require  a telephone consultation or appointment but not emergency treatment.

The extra appointments/telephone consultations are bookable by  ringing our reception on the usual number  01223 870250.  

Disabled Access

We have recently had new electric doors installed to improve disabled access to our surgery. If you require further assistance please phone ahead or ring the doorbell by the front door.

Dispensary patients can obtain their medicines directly from the surgery. We follow good prescribing practice and usually prescribe medication on a monthly basis. If you are entitled to free prescriptions please show appropriate evidence to our dispensary staff. If you pay for prescriptions and need regular medication it may be most cost effective to purchase a 'pre-payment certificate' (PPC). People who have to pay for more than 3 prescription items in 3 months, or 14 items in 12 months, could save money by buying a PPC. Information about how to do this on line or over the phone is here - you cannot do this at the surgery. Or you can print off the form here.
