We have an in-house social prescribing link worker
Saera, our Linkworker, will empower you to take control of your health and wellbeing. She is non-medical but will help to connect you to community groups and services for practical and emotional support eg debt advice, helping you to fill in taxi forms etc.
Social prescribing can help to strengthen community resilience and personal resilience, and reduces health inequalities by addressing the wider determinants of health, such as debt, poor housing and physical inactivity, by increasing people’s active involvement with their local communities. It particularly works for people with long-term conditions (including support for mental health), for people who are lonely or isolated, or have complex social needs which affect their wellbeing.
Saera is here twice a week: please speak to your GP or Reception to get an allocated time slot.

We are a training practice
We are proud to be an accredited practice working with our local hospital trusts in training the GP’s of the future.
We offer group consultations
Our patients tell us they want to spend more time with the clinician and to be linked up with people living with the same or similar health conditions as themselves. In the Group Consultation you receive the personal attention of your practice team in a calm, relaxed, well organised group setting. Imagine you get not just an unhurried appointment, but in fact a whole 60-90 minutes with your healthcare team, with 45 minutes of this spent with the GP.
- Health Lifestyle Group Consultations
- COPD Group Consultations
Please ask for the Administration Team who will add your name and provide you with the dates and further information.
If you need an appointment, rather than call the practice, log onto the website below and register.
The online triaging tool will ask you questions, assess your symptoms to assess the severity of your condition and enable you to get an appointment which will be booked online, should you require one.
We offer long term contraception to our patients
Please book an appointment at Reception to discuss long term contraception eg coils or implants which we offer at the practice.
We have achieved silver investors in people accreditation
Getting silver means that not only do we have the right principles in place to lead, support and improve our staff, but that we make active efforts to check they’re happening consistently.
Thank you to all the staff who gave feedback to the independent assessor.
