Our aim is to provide friendly, personal health care which combines the traditional values of General Practice with evidence based modern medicine, and we welcome new patients to the surgery.
If you wish to register you can do so on-line, or by calling into the surgery and completing the appropriate forms.
We are always looking to improve our services so please fill in our patient survey or leave some feedback on our contact details page or our Facebook page.
Clinical Teaching and Training
We are a GP training practice and we will be hosting GP registrars as part of their speciality training. GP registrars are fully qualified and registered doctors with the GMC. GP training is a 3-year course involving rotations in hospital medical specialities and attachment to a GP surgery placement.
This is a wonderful opportunity for the practice to show our trainees the rewards of working in a small rural surgery and I hope that you will extend your warmest welcome to them. To allow trainees to familiarise themselves with the working of the practice they will shadow GP clinics – please let our reception team know if you would prefer an unobserved consultation. You will also be invited to book into registrar clinics and I hope that you take up this opportunity for our trainees learning.
