Please note that we now have a carer's support worker in surgery on every 3rd Tuesday of the month from 11.15am to 12.30pm. No need for an appointment just pop in and see Lorna.
if you do identify yourself as an informal carer for a friend, family member or neighbour please let us know then we can invite you to events for carers and keep in touch with you.
Hay fever preparations
Hay fever time is upon us and this spring and summer hay fever has been particularly bad. NHS England have issued us guidance about not prescribing hay fever preparations for patients. Ask your local community pharmacy about the best options for you rather than ask for an NHS prescription. These preparations can be bought cheaply at supermarkets and discount stores as long as you know which item to buy.
We welcome new patients to the surgery. Registration is easy and you can often see a GP or the nurse very quickly for a new patient check. Pop into surgery with some ID to register. For further information please see the new patient tab above.

Named Accountable GP
Dr Azim Khan is the named accountable GP but of course patients can see any of our other GPs.
Over the counter Medicines (March 2017)
The local Clinical Commissioning Group has asked local surgeries to ask patients if they might be prepared to buy over the counter medicines such as simple painkillers or items easily and cheaply bought at the pharmacy rather than having them on a prescription. Your GP may ask you about this at a consultation if the GP feels that this might work for you.
New Practice Manager
