DNA Rate

In January 126 appointments were wasted by patients failing to attend.

Each missed appointment costs the NHS £24.50, so this amounts to £3,000+ gone to waste in just one month, by just one GP practice!

If you are unable to keep your appointment please can you notify the surgery as soon as possible. If we hold your correct mobile number, you can even cancel your appointment via text message.

In January we sent 2726 appointment reminders via text, and took a total of 83 text cancellations. We would like to thank everyone who cancelled an appointment which they no longer required.


Staff Changes

We are delighted to welcome our new receptionist Sam to the team.


We currently have Medical Students working with us.

Medical students may be required to sit in during consultations. If you do not feel comfortable with this, please inform a member of staff when you book your appointment or as soon as possible on arrival. 

For more information on the other type of students we have, please Click Here

We did: The surgery worked together with the PPG to fundraise and purchase a children's table and chair set for the waiting room.

You said: "Trying to fit in appointments when you work unsocial hours, you then have to take a days hol"
