Please only telephone 999 in a genuine medical emergency. 

Care Navigation - coming soon!

Over the coming months you will notice your Receptionist asking you for a brief outline of your problem when you call to make an appointment, it’s not because they are nosey!  This new way of working is about offering you more choice and enabling you to see other Specialists outside the practice too.  This option will often be quicker and you may not need to see the GP each time.  The choice is always yours though and you will never be refused the option to book a GP appointment! For more information click here

Are You a Carer?

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
