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.
