We would like to say a big thank you to Growing Well who have supported the production of our beautiful new appointment cards!

We have recently changed the name of our 48 hour surgery to the Duty Doctor Surgery. We hope that the new name more accurately describes the service which is for non-routine or on the day appointment requests.
