Foundation Year Doctors

This practice has been accredited as being suitable for the training of Foundation Year 2 (FY2) doctors which means we have achieved a number of standards which have been assessed by Health Education England.     

These Qualified doctors are gaining experience of General Practice before finalising their career specific pathway and they will have slightly longer consultation times. If you would prefer to see one of our regular GP's and not see an FY2 please let the reception staff know.

We hope you will support us in this training of our NHS colleagues.

TEXT MESSAGING

We will shortly be using a text messaging service to remind patients of their appointments and to invite them to book for various clinics. Please make sure that we have your correct mobile number. If you wish to opt out of this service please do so at Reception.
