Please find below our most recent CQC report in June 2017. We are always striving towards excellence in all areas and we need your help. Feedback highlights to us the areas that require change. Your feedback can be given in person, via email, letter, friends and family test, our via our comments and suggestions form.
We also welcome online feedback on public forums such as NHS Choices, I want Great Care and Google Reviews. However, please be mindful if write a review on these public forums you will not always get a reply from a member of staff. Please also be aware if you have a medical matter or an official complaint we ask that you contact a member of staff directly to ensure we can deal with your matter in a timely fashion.
For some people with complex needs e.g. if you have a learning difficulty or dementia it can be difficult to access care. To ensure you can access the right care we have now appointed a care co-ordinator. Kerry can be a point of contact at the surgery if you have any questions about your care or require assistance from your named doctor (where possible).
If you think you or your relative would benefit from this service please ask at reception. Unfortunately this is not a service that can be offered to everyone and each request will be reviewed by a doctor. Kerry will contact you to inform you of the outcome of your request.

Screening is a way of finding out if you are at higher risk of a health problem. If you are at risk, early treatment can be lifesaving. Please don't ignore your appointment requests. Please follow the links below for more information.
Free Screening for Sexually Transmitted Infections
Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection (STI). Chlamydia is the most common STI in the UK. People ages under 25 are more likely to get Chlamydia. If infected you often have no symptoms. Although easily treated, if left untreated it can have some serious long term effects on your health like infertility.
If you are sexually active, you should be tested for Chlamydia every year or when you change your sexual partner. If you are aged between 16-24 you are eligible for a free urine Chlamydia screening test. You can collect your free screening test today from our reception. Vouchers are in the toilets if you do not feel confident asking for a test. You will receive a text informing you of your result and if you need to collect any treatment.
