Mar 2020 - Temporary postponement of online bookable appointments
As part of the practice Coronavirus triage process we have been advised by Public Health England to postpone online bookable appointments. Therefore all appointments must be triaged by a receptionist who will then pass to a GP to speak to you if required. Thank you for your understanding at this time .
Mar 2020 - 11 March 2020 is Stop Smoking Day.
If you would like to stop smoking we have a Stop Smoking Clinic at the practice on Friday afternoons. Just ask reception.
