On Monday 18th February we will be welcoming back Dr Katie Mitchell from maternity leave!

When she gets back up to speed, her normal days will be Monday, Thursday & Friday.

Dr Joyce Braaksma who was covering the maternity leave finished up with us just before the February school holidays. She frequently locums with us though, so we expect to see her back periodically in the future.

Unfortunately due to sickness absence, we have less appointments than usual this Friday 15th February.

If your need to see the GP isn’t urgent, we ask that you avoid booking for this day where possible.

We thank you for your understanding.

Good Morning & Happy New Year,

 

Unfortunately we are having trouble with our phone lines this morning.

 

Calls are still filtering through to us, albeit slowly.

 

We have been in contact with our telephones provider and they are looking into the problem.

 

We apologise for the inconvenience.
