Problem with Giff Gaff network
We currently cannot ring mobiles on the Giff Gaff network. If you are with this network please inform us. BT hope to rectify the problem as soon as possible.
Patients who live outside of our area.
From January 5 2015, all GP practices in England are free to register new patients who live outside their practice boundary area.
This means that you are able to register with practices in more convenient locations, such as a practice near your work or closer to your children’s schools. This will provide you with greater choice and aims to improve the quality of access to GP services. These new arrangements are voluntary for GP practices.
