NAMED GP

Due to NHS England's guidelines all patients have been allocated a named GP. At this practice your named GP would be the GP that you were registered with when  you first joined the practice. This does not prevent you making an appointment or seeing any doctor of your choosing as you would normally do.

ORGAN DONATION

More than 10.000 people in the UK currently need an organ transplant.  Of these, 3 a day will die waiting as there are not enough organs available.

Only 31% of us have joined the organ donor register, please help save lives by registering now.

Are You a Carer?

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
