Dr Clelland and Crabtree completed their placement at the practice on 2nd August and have been replaced by Dr Emily Wilson and Dr Megan Fraser

Dr Al-Ausi has now returned to full time work and would like to pass on thanks to all the patients for their kind comments and good wishes.

Apr 2016 - Important information: Dr Al-Ausi and Cancellation of Managing Common Child Ailments Presentation

This week Dr Al-Ausi was seriously injured in a bike accident.  He is now recovering but will not return to work for several weeks and we will need to reschedule any appointments currently booked with him.

We are doing our best to create some additional clinics but it is difficult to find GPs to work at such short notice, and whilst we will continue to manage urgent need each day you may find it more difficult to book routine appointments in advance.  We are grateful for your patience and understanding at this time.

As our priority at this time is to ensure we have sufficient appointments it is with regret that we are postponing Dr Johnson’s Patient Presentation: Managing Common Child Ailments presentation (originally scheduled for Wednesday 27 April 2016).  We will inform you of a new date as soon as we can. 

Once again thank you for your understanding at this time.

Feb 2016 - Men B immunisation programme

The national Men B immunisation programme started on 1 September 2015 for babies aged 2 months, i.e. babies born on or after 1 July 2015, and there was a limited catch-up programme for babies born on or after 1 May 2015. The routine schedule is for immunisation to be given at 2 and 4 months with primary immunisations, with a booster at 12 months.


However following the recent media coverage about the death of a young girl from invasive meningococcal disease caused by Men B we have received a lot of queries from parents about the availability of Men B immunisation.


Due to the shortage of the Bexsero® vaccine we have been issued express instruction by NHS England not to vaccinate children born before 1 May 2015 ie the national stock should only be used to vaccinate children who are eligible for the NHS vaccination.


It may be possible to contact provider organisations who can vaccinate for a private fee, and they will charge the full costs of the vaccine and any additional administration charges that the private provider may apply. We do not hold any information about local private vaccination providers.
