It is with regret that we have to inform you that


will be leaving the practice at the end of June 2016.


She will greatly missed by everyone at the Practice and we would like to take this opportunity to wish her all the very best for the future.




 The doctors have been fortunate enough to find two GPs

Dr Jennifer MacDonald and Dr Naomi Dow

to fill the current vacant positions at the practice, however, they will not be taking up their places until the beginning of August 2016.


Dr MacDonald and Dr Dow will be joining the practice on Wednesday, 3 August 2016 and Tuesday, 9 August 2016 respectively.


The practice will endeavour to provide as full a service as possible until Drs MacDonald and Dow have joined us but there will be days in July when service has to be restricted, as has been the case recently.


The GPs and Staff appreciate your support and understanding during this time.


Shirley Mann

Practice Manager




The Surgery will be closed

between 1.30pm and 2.30pm

 Renovation work has been completed and we now have two lovely new Treatment Rooms, which gives us the opportunity to improve on services provided by our Practice Nursing team and afford our patients some privacy during their consultations.


It is hoped that the Physiotherapy Service will return to the practice in the next few weeks.


We thank you for your patience and understanding during the disruption of these renovations.





 Ever wondered why you couldn’t see the Doctor or Nurse sooner?

 Did you know that, in July 2015:

 103 appointments

were booked by patients who then failed to attend them

 40 Doctor appointments – equivalent to THREE afternoon surgeries*


63 Nurse appointments – equivalent to TWO full days of surgeries*

If, in the future, you are unable to attend, please let us know in advance so that we can offer the appointment to someone else.


Thank you
