Please see our opening times for the Christmas and New Year period - on behalf of all the doctors and staff we want to wish all our patients a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


Our Reception team now triage every call by asking you a few questions regarding the nature of your appointment.  This is so they can navigate you to the best clinician in our team to treat you.  As our team is expanding this may not by a doctor. Please try to help them by giving us as much information as possible as to why you would like an appointment.


We would like to welcome Sam Barker  to our clinical team.  Sam joins us as a mental health nurse who will be able to see our patients with any mental health problems including depression, anxiety, stress etc.  


We would like to welcome Dr Faatima Bala to our clinical team.  Dr Bala joins us as a permanent salaried GP working 6 sessions per week.  


Following the new GDPR rules that came into force on 25th May we have updated our privacy notice.  This can be found on the link below or in the Privacy Notice section of the website.


We will be recalling all our patients for their annual chronic disease review starting 1st April.  You may receive a text appointment or letter inviting you to attend.  We have arranged our clinic reviews so that, where possible, one review appointment will cover all the chronic diseases you may have.  Please attend this review even if you are seen regularly by the doctor or attend the hospital for this condition.

*Important Information regarding our Flu Vaccination Programme 2018*

This year , three types of flu vaccine will be used in the flu programme.  This will benefit patients by ensuring that they have the most suitable vaccine that gives them the best protection against flu.  The three vaccines are:

  • Trivalent Flu Vaccine - this is licensed for people aged 65 years and over and is the vaccine recommended by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisations for this age group.
  • Quadrivalent Flu Vaccine- this is recommended for children age 6 months to 2 years and in adults 18 years to under 65 years who are at increased risk because of long term health condition.

  • Live attenuated Flu Vaccine- this is a nasal spray licensed for children aged 2years to 18 years.

Stable fold will be using these vaccines this year as recommend by NHS England.

This year we have had to modify the way we deliver our flu clinics due to a phased delivery of all the vaccines between September and November.

Because of this our  Flu Clinics will not begin until 22nd October

  • Please note that enough vaccines have been ordered for all our eligible patients but we are only permitted to give the vaccine that corresponds to your criteria following NHS England guidance.
  • Appointments are now available to book at the surgery or you can obtain the Flu vaccine at the local pharmacy if they have supplies.
