Congratulations to Dr Brown
We are delighted to announce that Dr Brown had a baby girl on the 24th August.  Dr Brown is currently enjoying becoming a new mum, and spending time with her family.  We are looking forward to welcoming her back to the surgery from February 2020.

Charity Walk
Jan, our nursing assistant, would like to thank all the patients who kindly sponsored her Marathon Walk for Charity on 20th July.  We are delighted to announce she raised £705 for Macmillan Cancer Care. I’m sure you’ll agree this is a wonderful achievement and we are all extremely proud of her.

Lost Property
If you are missing your glasses you may have left them at the surgery! Please ask at reception.

Flu Vaccines
We have now received our flu vaccinations.  Please call and book your appointment.  The vaccination is recommended (and free!) to all patients over the age of 65, pregnant women, and those who have long term medical condition regardless of age. If you are unsure please ask.

A limited number of Saturday appointments are also available so please book as soon as possible.

Over Day Centre
The Over Day Centre Association is a charity that provides professional care catering to individual needs, in an environment that is friendly, engaging and health & safety conscious.  Over Day Centre supports individuals in their desire to maintain social interaction and to stay as independent and active as possible with opportunities to make new friends and participate in enjoyable activities.  The service provides much needed support and respite for families caring for a loved one.

Currently it costs £21 per day to attend including a hot 2-course lunch and all drinks and morning & afternoon snacks.  The minibus will collect from home, and has a wheelchair lift (there is no extra charge to use the bus).
