We are aware of a recent letter being sent out from a company called Pharmacy2U. We would like to inform our patients that this is not sent from the surgery, and certainly is not endorsed or approved by us.
The blue and white colouring of the literature, which contains the NHS logo, makes it look like an official NHS leaflet but this is not the case. They are not part of your surgery, your local pharmacy, but are a distance internet only company.
We would like our patients to have a choice but hope you continue to support the services of your surgery or local pharmacy in order to keep these services available.
Dr Simon Knowles
It is with sadness that announce that Dr Knowles will be retiring from the Practice at the end of May 2019. He will have been with the Practice for over 21 years when he leaves, and I am sure you will join us in wishing him well for the future.
Evening and Weekend Appointments
The Practice is now offering Saturday and Sunday appointments. Saturdays allow the ability to pre-book for both GP and Nurses, and Sundays for GP only appointments.
Please ask at reception for current availability.
Other the recent months there have been a number of staff changes. These will continue as the Practice progresses.
These changes are all positive, and we hope that you will see the difference.
