The reception area is open from 8.00 am to 6.30 pm Monday to Friday. We are closed at weekends and on all public holidays.

Out of hours :If you or your family need urgent medical care when the surgery is closed, please phone 111. One surgery in the area is offering appointments at weekends. If you call 111 they should be able to direct you to the surgery offering this service.

 The best time to call the surgery for advice is after morning clinics, usually between 11.30 and 12 noon. If the doctor you wish to speak to is still busy they will call you back, provided you leave a phone number, preferably a land line. 

Registration

The surgery is able to accept new patients who live in our practice area. 

Training

Every two months (but sometimes more often) the practice will be closed on  a Tuesday afternoon to allow protected staff training time. We need to  do this to keep up with changes and developments which affect the practice.  On these afternoons the phones will be switched off for up to five hours, reception may be closed, and any urgent needs will be directed to the out of hours service

The next date is in February 2018

You may either bring a friend or relative, or a trained member of staff will be happy to provide this service for you.

We are offer a sexual health check-up to everybody aged 15 to 24.

This is just for people without symptoms and will look for infections such as chlamydia. It does not involve an examination, but involves just a simple urine test for men; and women take their own swab.

If you would like to go ahead with a check-up, please book an appointment with one of our Practice Nurses.

Dr Foxwell will fit and remove contraceptive implants, and Dr King fits coils. If you would like to discuss either of these methods of contraception, please arrange to speak to them by phone.

We are now able to supply free condoms to people aged 15 to 24, under the C-Card Scheme. If you would like to register for the scheme, please make an appointment with our nurse Heidi.
