Accident & Emergency or GP
A&E departments are for life-threatening and emergency conditions, such as heart attacks, strokes, breathing problems and serious accidents but figures show that 42% of all the people attending A&E don’t need to be there.
A&E teams are currently faced with cases such as coughs and colds, backache and upset stomachs on a daily basis—conditions that could be dealt with through a trip to the high street chemist or by coming to the surgery here.
Going to A&E and not having any treatment costs £59.
Missed GP appointment - £48 is wasted but could be even more. Someone with minor illness or injury may be unable to get an appointment with their GP so visit A&E instead resulting in more costs. If more people cancel their GP appointment they can be given to someone else who needs them.
Minor Surgery Clinics
These are held on variable days. Many small lumps and bumps are surgically treatable at the Practice. Please see a GP for initial consultation.
We offer in-house INR dosing.

If you are a visitor to the area and require medical assistance, you can see a local doctor as a temporary resident.
You can be sure that anything you discuss with any member of this practice: family doctor, nurse or receptionist - will stay confidential. Even if you are under sixteen, nothing will be said to anyone - including parents, other family members, care workers or tutors - without your permission. The only reason we might have to consider disclosing confidential information without your permission, would be to protect you or someone else from serious harm. We will always try to discuss this with you first. If you have any worries about confidentiality, please feel free to ask a member of staff.
