Thank you for visiting this practice. You are encouraged to maintain a relationship with the doctor of your choice who, with due notice, will usually be able to give you an appointment. Should the need for consultation be urgent, and your usual doctor unavailable, another can attend your needs until your doctor is available.
We are not owned or managed by a “corporate” but personally run all aspects of the practice.
As a recognised teaching practice we occasionally have a senior medical student with us. You will be told beforehand if this is the case. Please notify the reception staff if this is not convenient. It will NOT offend.
From time to time this practice invites patients to complete a questionnaire on their views of the prac-tice. These surveys are completely confidential and help us improve our services.
If you are unhappy about any aspect of care, we are keen to know about it. Please feel free to talk to your doctor or the receptionist about any problems you have with the service we provide.
