Advanced Nurse Practitioner Vacancy
We are currently trying to recruit a new advanced practitioner. This is affecting the number of urgent/on the day appointments we can offer. We are currently using locum ANP's to cover the sessions. Please be assured that we are doing our best to try and fill this vacancy.
Flu Campaign 2019/2020
If you still want to have your flu vaccination we will be running some catch-up clinics in the next few weeks. We will send you a text or a letter to let you know when the dates are. The practice nurses are currently going out to make sure our housebound patients have their vaccination.
Historically we have always closed on a Thursday afternoon. This has now changed and we are open until 6:30pm for patients to make appointments and order/collect repeat prescriptions.
