Our Mission Statement



Staff Changes

We have new GP joining us on 31 August - Dr Vanessa Hayter, together with Dr Heather Colyer who joined us last month they will cover Dr Byron's patients between them.  I am sure you will join us in a warm welcome.

4th Year Students

From 9th September to 31st January 2021 there will be 4th year students sitting in or running some GP consultations. The student will either sit in and observe the consultation and may ask questions or run the consultation. This is to aid learning they will soon qualify as doctors.

If you would rather a student was not present, please tell the receptionist or the GP you have the appointment with.



You can still contact your GP, 111 online or call 111 for help.  We'll give you the care you need

This Video Consultation Guide will explain what you need and how to set up and start a video consultation with the surgery.



Flu Vaccination

Seasonal Flu Vaccinations 2020/21

Our appointments for this year’s flu campaign are now available.  If you are eligible for a vaccination you will receive a letter with details and instructions for this year shortly.

You are at risk of serious flu complications if you are among vulnerable groups, including people over 65, pregnant women and those living with an underlying health condition, such as:

  • Chronic respiratory diseases
  • Chronic heart disease
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Chronic liver disease
  • Chronic neurological conditions, such as Parkinson's disease
  • Diabetes
  • Spleen problems, for example sickle cell disease
  • A weakened immune systems
  • Being seriously overweight (a BMI of 40 or above)

If you fall into any of these categories - there's a flu vaccine with your name on it.

Patients aged between 50 - 64 years who are not in the above mentioned groups.  Vaccine is not available until November/December – we will contact you with clinic dates once we receive further guidance from NHS England; this allows us to focus on those who are in an at risk group.  They will be given priority and offered the vaccine first.
