It is with great sadness that we report the passing of our colleague Linda Burnip after a long illness bravely bourne.
Linda was a highly respected and caring nurse who always put her patient's interests first. She will be very much missed by staff and patients and our thoughts are with her family at this sad time.
Surgery Mission Statement:
Our aim is to provide high quality healthcare for all. Our philosophy is to treat people how we would want to be treated. To us every patient matters.
Our aim is to be as polite and helpful as possible to all patients. If you consider that you have been treated unfairly or inappropriately, please ask the receptionist to contact the Practice Manager who will be happy to address your concerns. However, shouting and swearing at staff will not be tolerated under any circumstances and patients who are abusive may be removed from the patient list.

In January 2017 there were 157 appointments that were booked which the patient subsequently failed to attend.
This means that 26 HOURS of Doctors and Nurses time were wasted.
Patients requiring routine appointments have had to wait longer than necessary to be seen. If you are unable to attend your booked appointment please contact the Surgery on 01579 335320 so that this appointment can be given to another patient. We can also rebook your appointment at the same time if this is required.
