Noticeboard

Thursday 9th November


We would like to sincerely apologise to our patients who were trying to contact us during our closure afternoon. The Surgery was closed for training as per guidance from the CCG. We had instructed our telephone provider to change our answerphone message, and provide a mobile telephone number for one of our GPs, so patients who needed urgent medical attention could contact them. Unfortunately despite confirmation and assurance from our provider earlier in the day, the message was not changed until late in the afternoon. We can only apologise for the inconvenience caused. Should you like to discuss this matter further, please contact the surgery and leave your details. Our Practice Manager will contact you.

Are You a Carer?

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
