New Patient Registration
This practice is currently accepting a limited number of new patients each week. This restriction has been necessary to ensure that our existing patients continue to receive a good service from the practice. We can only take registrations from 12 noon on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE TOTAL NUMBER OF PATIENTS THAT WE CAN ACCEPT IS WEEKLY AND THEREFORE WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT WE WILL HAVE AVAILABILIY ON EACH OF THESE DAYS DUE TO THE NUMBER OF REQUESTS RECEIVED. This quota does not include new babies and relatives of existing patients who live in the practice area.
Please see Home Page for temporary changes to our normal working practices.
25th March 2020 - In light of the current coronavirus pandemic we are looking to reduce the number of people passing through the medical practice. As a result as a temporary measure we are unable to take face to face registrations.
A member of staff will be available today from 12 noon to assist with registrations to the left of front door via the window. We unfortunately can only take a limited number of registrations - 18 per week. Please be patient as we are extremely busy at this time.
We would remind everyone to maintain social distancing to protect yourselves and our staff
The practice does not discriminate on the grounds of: sex, race, colour, nationality, ethnic origin, marital status, age, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance, disability or medical condition.
