We are pleased to inform patients and carers that our specific carers page has now been launched. On this page you will find our carers pack to download, including useful contacts, information on our coffee mornings and local carers organisations. We encourage all carers to let us know your details so that we may support you.
We now run Acute Care Clinics each weekday morning for quick problems of a minor nature. This is to reduce appointment waiting times for those patients who need to see us sooner. These clinics can only be accessed by ringing us for an appointment. Please see our appointments page for more details.
This winter we encourage all patients to self-care where appropriate to ease pressures on the already strained health services. Please visit our new winter illness and self-care pages for lots of resources to help.
If you are poorly and feel you need to be seen, please let us know and the doctor on duty will assess your call.
We are unable to provide a minor injury service to patients. We would kindly ask that any patient with an injury or with a condition that can be seen at the Minor Injuries Unit (MIU), to present themselves directly to the local MIU, which is at Ripley Hospital, Slack Lane.
Ever wondered why you can't get an appointment? Watch our information videos about the State of General Practice, the NHS and the politics behind it all.

We are closed roughly once a month from 1.30pm for staff training. This is for the benefit of our staff and to improve patient care.

Please notify us immediately of any change of name, address or telephone number so that we may update our records. Telephone numbers, including a current mobile number, are very important for emergency purposes, particularly if a patient is ex-directory. Please use our contact form or ring or write to us (address and telephone number shown below).

For some reason, NHS England requires all GPs to publish their earnings. Hmmm.
