Latest Patient Information Leaflet
The lastest PIL is out now click here to view it online.
The British Medical Association (BMA) and the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) have both launched campaigns to highlight some of the pressures which general practice are currently facing; we need your support.
Please go on line at www.rcgp.org.uk/campaign-home and www.bma.org.uk/working-for-change/your-gp-cares to support these campaigns. With increased public pressure we are campaigning for better resourcing of primary care to improve our services, particularly for those with complex health problems, maintain good access to GPs and to raise the profile of primary care as the lifeblood of the NHS in the face of national spending pressures. If you are in the surgery please ask our reception staff for the RCGP petition speaking out for a funding increase over the next two years to enable us to offer greater flexibility, shorter waiting times, longer appointments and improved care.
The results of our latest survey are now ready to view. Thank you to everyone who completed a survey. Please "click me" to open a PDF version.
