Noticeboard

We currently have a vacancy for an Apprentice Patient Care Adviser (PCA).   Please see Current Vacancies for further information.


* * * * *


Since 2015 the NHS has asked that each practice updates patients records to ensure you have a named accountable/usual GP.  We have done this.  This does not prevent you from seeing any GP.   If you would like to know who your accountable/usual GP is, please ask when next in surgery.
