From 1st April 2022 the way you receive your vaccinations for overseas travel will change. This means that you will no longer receive these from your GP Practice. The changes are for both adult and childhood travel vaccinations.

Please see our Travel Vaccination page for more info.

April 1st, 2022

Please note on Tuesday 15th and Wednesday 16th of March the surgery will be operating on emergency appointments and enquiries only.

We would kindly ask that you only contact the practice on these two dates if your enquiry is essential.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. This is to allow essential protected learning for all staff.

If you already have an appointment scheduled for either of these dates, your appointment will still go ahead.

Thank you for your support.

We have a new registrar (trainee GP) at the practice, Dr Lucy Kinnell. She will be with us initially for a period of 6 months. We wish her a warm welcome to the practice.

That means we will be saying goodbye to our current registrar Dr Johan Krieger, who will be moving on to his next placement. We wish him the best of luck with the next part of his training.
