Welcome to the surgery. We are a friendly, single handed GP practice servicing approximately 1400  patients. Our    aim is to provide good quality health care.  We offer a range of appointments throughout the week  during the morning and afternoons except on a  Thursday afternoon when the surgery is  closed.

We run clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as Asthma and Diabetes and offer a range of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, contraception, childhood vaccinations and health screening. 

New patients will be asked to complete our practice questionnaire or you can make an appointment with our Practice

Nurse for a new patient check. From this first appointment, the nurse and doctor will become aware of any important medical conditions, allergies etc. you might have. You will also have your blood pressure and urine checked. It can take some time for your notes to arrive from your previous doctor; therefore it will be helpful to get some details in the meanwhile.
