How to See a Doctor
The doctor’s work in a partnership and are happy to see any registered patient, regardless of which doctor’s name is on your medical card. This enables medical care to continue even if your doctor is absent; however, please try and consult with the same doctor for each episode of illness where possible.
The practice is participating in the NHS’ national agenda to help improve access to GP’s and nurses.
