Click here to view our practice area, once open please input your postcode where indicated and press 'check if postcode is in catchment area'. If your postcode is not in our practice area, you will need to register at another GP surgery.
From 2015, practices could allow patients who live or move outside of the practice area, to register as an out of area patient and patients could be seen at any GP who participated in the scheme. This is a voluntary scheme to which the practice does not have to participate.
Due to the number of new housing developments within our practice area, we have decided not to participate in the voluntary scheme in order to ensure that we offer the best possible service to patients within our area. Unfortunately this means that patients, who live or move outside our practice boundary, will be asked to find a new GP or be removed by Primary Care Support England if they suspect a patient has moved.
Accountable/Named GP For All Patients
The Practice is required by the Government under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP (identified as your usual GP on your medical records).
Please note there is no need to telephone the Practice, it is for information only. Please feel free to ask the reception staff when you next visit the Surgery of who your named doctor is.
Our named Accountable GP's at the Practice are Dr G Harrison, Dr H Turner, Dr P Mawer, Dr L Boyle, Dr R Bond, Dr J Ashton and Dr E Edstam.
Where a patient expresses a preference as to which GP they have been assigned, the Practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.
Having a Name Accountable GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the Practice.
The Self Care Forum
It is now winter and we are seeing many people with the common cold, who could manage themselves. Please have a look at the 'Self Care Forum' for help with conditions such as low back pain and coughs. A great self-help resource for common ailments.
