We have 2 further floors devoted to administrative work and remote consulting.
We have 2 bike hoops outside our practice.

Strike action 24-28/2/24
Choose the right NHS service for you and your family
If you need medical help during planned strike action, please use NHS services wisely to make sure care is available to those who need it most.
Strike action is taking place from 7am on the 24 February to 11:59pm on the 28 February 2024. This will mean that NHS services will be busier than normal, and some appointments may be cancelled. Please attend your booked appointments unless you are told otherwise.
Make sure you have enough of any medication you need, and remember, your local pharmacist can advise on minor medical problems. You can find your nearest pharmacy at NHS.uk
If you have a health concern that is not life-threatening, support is available at NHS111 online or by phoning NHS 111. If it is a life-threatening emergency such as serious illness or injury, you should still call 999.
Cancer Symptoms and Screening
If you are worried about any unusual symptoms you may be experiencing that could be cancer, please contact your doctor.
You may be offered a telephone, video consultation or a face-to-face appointment. Chances are it is nothing serious, but finding cancer early makes it more treatable.
National data opt-out
The national data opt-out is a service that allows patients to opt out of their confidential patient information being used for research and planning.

MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella)
Measles cases are rising in England this year. If your child is not fully vaccinated, please book in for an appointment with our nurses.
- One vaccine
The MMR vaccine is a single injection that is administered into the thigh of young children or the upper arm of older children or adults. It is a live vaccine which means that it contains weakened versions of measles, mumps and rubella viruses. These have been weakened enough to produce immunity without causing disease.
- Two doses
The MMR vaccine gives long lasting protection with just two doses of the vaccine. The first dose is given at the age of 12 months and the second dose is given at around three years and four months, before starting school. Having both doses gives long lasting protection against measles, mumps and rubella. In adults and older children the two doses can be given with a one month gap between them.
- Three infections
The MMR vaccine protects against three infections; measles, mumps and rubella. These are viral infections that can quickly spread to unprotected children and adults – they spread more easily than flu or the common cold.
Long Term Conditions Check
We are improving the way we work with patients with long-term conditions.
Patients living with certain long-term conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes and kidney disease will be encouraged to attend a Yearly Health Check.
Watch the short film (right) to see an example of a patient’s journey through the key stages of the process and help you understand what to expect from your Yearly Health Check.
