Our car park is adjacent to the surgery and includes parking spaces for disabled visitors. There is wheelchair access to the premises.

New patients can register by completing form GMS1 available at reception.

All new patients are now offered a screening check by the Healthcare Assistant. This is for routine checks, i.e. blood pressure, weight, height etc.
