Week commencing 1st August
We have very little capacity for routine GP appointments available.
Please only contact us if your issue is urgent and can not wait.
Due to ongoing issues with staff and GP shortages, we are suspending the online appointment request service. The service will be open for prescription and administrative requests only.
If you need an appointment please call the practice.
Additionally, you can seek advice from a local pharmacy or NHS 111. These services are now part of the NHS's primary care umbrella.
If you feel your condition may be life-threatening, call 999 or attend your local A+E
We are seeking GP provision from agency staff to aid cover, in the meantime please bear with us.
We apologise and thank you for your understanding and continued support.
Dear patients, the PPG, and the entire village!
Thank you all so much for the party, everything was so thoughtful and so well done especially the cake!!
I was incredibly touched by all the good wishes, cards, and gifts and felt very humbled. It has always been a privilege to care for you all, and to know that I have made a difference in some small way is a reward in itself.
Thank you once again for the last 26 years and I shall miss you all!
Dr Helen Godridge
Self care - what are the benefits?
Self care is good for you and for the NHS. There are lots of benefits to self care. We believe it’s:
Quicker - no need to wait for a GP appointment. You can buy the medicines you need over the counter at your local pharmacy or supermarket and have them ready to use at home.
Easier - many treatments can be bought without the need for a prescription at your local pharmacy or supermarket, often for much less than a prescription charge.
Simple - advice and information about self care is widely available online. You can also call into any pharmacy for advice on the best treatment for your minor illness.
Considerate - self care helps relieve pressures on GP practices, urgent care centres and A&E.
