Latest News

 

Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) Appointments



We have recently welcomed Majella Beattie to the practice staff to work as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP). ANPs are nurses who have acquired extra skill-sets that enable them to operate at a higher clinical level than normal practice nurses. An ANP can diagnose, prescribe and manage patient conditions in a way similar to GPs. Please click the following link for more details: Advanced Nurse Practitioner.

 

  

Telephone System

 
We have recently upgraded our telephone system and now offer some services by telephone. These include prescription request services and an automated cancellation line (both open 24/7, except when it is a public holiday). Missed appointments cause delays for other patients so please do call the cancellation to cancel an appointment if you are unable to attend so that it can be used by somebody else.

 

Private Services

We now offer private podiatry, physiotherapy and psychology, if you are unable to wait for a free NHS appointment or would prefer a private service. Please contact the surgery if you are interested in any of these services. 

Other Updates

Dr Grieve has joined the surgery on a permanent basis. Dr Waters and Dr Forrest are our new GP registrars. Alice Herrington has joined the surgery as our new practice nurse.
