COVID-19 - Coronavirus 

Vaccination is the most important thing you can do to protect your community against serious illnesses.  When enough people get vaccinated, it’s harder for a disease to spread to those who can’t have vaccines.


We know many people are interested in the COVID-19 vaccination and want to assure you that we are working through a priority list set by the Department of Health.  Please do not contact your GP about getting the vaccine. We will contact patients in order of priority.

New Practice Boundary:

To provide the best care for our existing patients we have decided to  reduce our practice radius to 5.5 miles of the surgery.

We will only accept applications from new patients who live within this radius

Any existing patients who CHANGE address to a new address outside the radius will also be asked to re-register with a GP surgery closer to them.



Practice Survey Reporting

The practice undertook the survey of patients in February 2020.


All the patients who had contact with the health centre in the survey period – 1 full week - were given the opportunity to complete the survey – this included patients ordering prescriptions, making appointments, attending GP’s, Practice Nurse, and Midwife for appointments. Regardless of age, ability or ethnicity


Over 2% of the practice population were invited to complete the survey (120 patients) - the practice received 114 responses.

In total the responses 32.5% were male & 67.5% were female.

The overwhelming majority of responses to recommendation question for the practice were positive.

72.% of patients stated they were extremely likely to recommend the practice, 22.5% stated they were likely to recommend the practice and 5% stated they didn’t know.
