Noticeboard

We have almost finished our first doses of all 75+ aged patients and shielders. The practice will contact these patients again in the near future for the second dose.


All other age groups/categories will be completed in community hubs which will be communicated to you directly by the Health Board and not the practice. You can visit NHS Inform or call the COVID vaccine helpline on 0800 030 8013 for any queries.


To reduce footfall at the surgery, all prescriptions must be picked up by a pharmacy driver and sicklines must be posted out to your home. Please do NOT come to the surgery for either of these.


Also if you are a new patient looking to register with the practice, please do NOT come to the surgery to do this, instead see the following page for more information on how to register.

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.
