Improving access to patients - evening and weekend appointments now available
Our patients can now book an appointment to see a GP or nurse on weekday evenings (after 6.30pm) or at the weekends (on Saturday and Sunday). Appointments will either take place at this practice or at another NHS setting nearby in the area.
By March 2019 everyone in England will benefit from access to general practice appointments in the evenings and weekends at a time that is most convenient to them. This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients. Further information is available at www.england.nhs.uk/gpaccess

Informing Patients of their Named & Accountable GP
It is a contractual requirement that GP practices inform patients of their Named & Accountable GP.
Your named and accountable GP will be responsible for your overall healthcare.
If you have any preference to which named GP you prefer, please you can contact us and let us know. We will do our utmost to accommodate your request.
Please note that this does not restrict you from seeing any other clinician at the practice.
