Please note that the surgery will be closed from 1pm on Monday 23rd September 2019 for staff training and will reopen at 8am on Tuesday 24th September 2019. Our phones will be diverted to the out of hours provider who will be able to assist with any medical concerns you may have and, if necessary provide access to our duty doctor.


Care Navigation


You may have noticed that we now ask for a brief outline of your problem when you call to make an appointment at the practice. This isn’t because our reception staff are nosy but it’s a new approach that we call care navigation.


Through specialist training, our team can now offer more choice on who to see in the practice and help you get to the right health professional fast. Our receptionists never offer clinical advice or triage; this is about offering you the choice to see other specialists in our practice team if they have the expertise to deal with your problem; often quicker and without the need to see the GP each time.


By working this way, it helps us to free up time for GPs to care for our patients with complex or serious health conditions. More importantly though, it means you are seen by the clinician that is best placed to deal with your problem each time you visit us. The choice is up to you.


Due to a shortage of GP's, we have temporarily capped our lists and are currently not accepting new registrations. Click here to see how you can help our receptionists deal with your request in the most appropriate way.
