Noticeboard

We now have  a nurse practitioner service we can offer to patients. They are able to treat most acute problems so you may be directed to these instead of a GP.


Please note patients are registered to the practice list and not individual GP's, doctor of choice is not always possible but we try to accommodate.


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.  




Our Health Care Assistant Sarah recently completed her Bolton Care Certificate, well done Sarah.  Here she is being presented with her award.
