Practice CQC Inspection report
The surgery was inspected by the CQC in November 2015 and received an overall rating of Good, with Outstanding for caring. Click on the link below to read the full report.
Named Accountable GP
All GP Practices are now required to provide their patients with a 'named, accountable GP'.
The named accountable GP takes responsibility for the co-ordination of appropriate services required under the practice's NHS contract and ensures that they are delivered to each of their patients where required (based on the clinical judgement of the named accountable GP).
All of our patients, including children, now have a named GP who is responsible for their overall care.
Please note that this does NOT prevent you from seeing any GP of your choice in the practice as you currently do now, and you will not see any change in the way care is delivered to you by us. Important announcement - GP changes
It is with much sadness that we said goodbye to Dr Chappelow and Dr Gilchrist at the end of November. Dr Chappelow has retired and needless to say we will all miss her. She worked tirelessly to improve the practice for the benefit of all. She will have much more time to enjoy her love of the great outdoors!
A new GP, Dr Michael Farrell has joined us. Dr Farrell brings a wealth of experience from his time as an RAF medic and GP. We are delighted to welcome him to the practice.Online Access to Services
