Text Message Reminders

If we hold your correct mobile number a text message will be sent to confirm your appointment and a further reminder will be sent approximately 24 hours before your appointment. Unfortunately from time to time there may be issues beyond our control which mean you may not receive these messages. In this event we work as quickly as we can with our technology providers to rectify the problem but we would suggest that if you book an appointment please ensure that you write the details of the appointments down and if you do not receive a reminder text do still keep the appointment or if you no longer require the appointment contact reception to cancel the appointment giving as much notice as possible so we can offer the appointment to other patients.

Facebook and Twitter

You can now keep up to date with all our news by liking us on facebook or following us on twitter.

Named GP

By March 2016 all patients (including children) will have been allocated a 'named accountable GP'  who will be responsible for their overall care at the practice. You do not have to see your named GP, you can continue to book appointments with whichever GP you wish. Please ask our reception team if you would like to know who your named GP is. All new patients will be allocated a named GP when they register. If you wish to change your named GP please inform us and we will do our very best to accommodate your request, although this cannot be guaranteed due to the workload of our GPs.

GP Session Changes

Commencing 1st July 2015 we are pleased to inform you that Dr Sarah Johns will be increasing her sessions. Her new sessions will be Monday all day, Wednesday and Thursday mornings, and Friday all day.
Also from 1st July Dr Paul Jacklin will no longer be working Thursday mornings. His sessions will be Tuesday and Wednesday all day, Thursday afternoon and Friday all day.

Surgery Times

From week commencing 25th May 2015 we will be introducing a second early morning surgery. The additional surgery will be on Thursdays 7.00 am - 8.00am. In addition to this late night surgery on Monday evenings will now be telephone consultation appointments. These consultations will be pre-bookable in advance in the same way as appointments at the surgery.
Please note these sessions may occasionally need to be cancelled due to staff training and holidays.

Online Access to Medical Records

Patients are now able to access parts of their medical record online if they wish. This is a basic summary which includes repeat medications and allergies. If you wish to be able to view this information online please speak to our receptionist who will give you further information and a form to complete. If you are already registered to book appointments and order prescriptions online you will need to inform us that you would like to be registered for this facility too.


The refurbishment of our reception area is now complete and access to the surgery is once again through the main entrance opposite Sainsburys. Patient feedback was that our reception area was outdated and the glass in the reception desk acted as a barrier, we’ve listened to your comments and designed the refurbishment with this in mind. We hope you like the improved area and welcome any feedback.


The last 12 months has seen some changes to our management structure with Andrea Swanson being appointed as the Practice Business Manager in September 2014. Helen Nixon took on the role of Administration Manager and Jo Taylor was appointed as Communications, Health & Safety Manager in the New Year. 
Julie Hubbard, who is in her 20th year with us was appointed as our Senior Receptionist in January and we welcome Laura Scott to our administration team at the end of January.
