BREAKING NEWS #3
Our appointments system is changing
In response to the ever growing demand for appointments, we are trialling a new system in November for patients wishing to book "on the day" appointments
Our telephone lines will be open from 8:30am and after a brief discussion with a receptionist you will be booked for a telephone call from a GP when the appropriate way forward will be agreed
Consequently, the Reception Desk will not open until 9:00am while staff are busy with telephone calls
Our doors will continue to open at 8:25am for patients with pre-booked appointments
We hope this will be a more accessible service for all our patients and do thank you for your co-operation during the November trial period
Dental emergency and out-of-hours service
If you think you need urgent care, contact your usual dentist as some practices offer emergency dental slots and will provide care if clinically necessary. You can also call NHS111, who can put you in touch with an urgent dental service

What is the NHS Friends and Family Test?
The NHS Friends and Family Test is a way of gathering your feedback, so we can continually review our service. It is based on one simple question:
How likely are you to recommend our GP practice to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?
Your feedback will help us learn more about what you think of your experience - what you like and what you think we could improve. Ultimately, you're helping us to make changes that will ensure we can offer the best possible care
