Take your own Blood Pressure

We now have a blood presure machine in reception so that you can take your own BP without the need for an appointment. Just drop in! It is situated in the "pram park".  It is easy to use and the instructions are easy to follow.


Every Patient Has A Named GP

Every patient now has a named GP.  This is the GP who will co-ordinate your practice-based care.  Your GP's name appears on any prescription that is issued to you.  You can also ask any member of the practice staff to confirm who your named GP is.  This doesn't restrict which doctor you can ask to see when you make an appointment. 

Your Feedback

We value your feedback.  After an appointment with us, please give your feedback via the "Friends and Family Test" on the website or by completing the slip available at the surgery. Thank you.
