The festive holidays are fast approaching. Your GP surgery & local pharmacies become exceptionally busy during this period.

Please help us by ordering your medication in plenty of time so we have sufficient time to get this ready for you. Also, make sure you have enough medication to cover the festive period to reduce strain on the out of hours services.

Thank you.

This month we said ‘see you later’ to our Advanced Nurse Practitioner Gillian Bonar. Gillian will be taking a year’s sabbatical from the practice.

Whilst Gillian is away on her adventures, we would like to welcome our new Practice Nurse Elaine Ferrier, who will be with us for the next year.

Elaine covers all our normal chronic disease reviews and contraception reviews. She can also perform cervical smear tests and offer advice on minor illnesses amongst many other things. Elaine will be working with us all day Tuesdays and Thursdays.

We still of course have our Advanced Nurse Practitioners Elaine Ponton & Jackie Low.
