Upgrade to our Onsite Dispensary
In order for us to improve our service to patients, we are having substantial works carried out within our onsite dispensary. These works will be undertaken from 7th January and may continue until the end of January. To allow access for these works to be carried out safely we need to section off a part of the car park. This will be the area adjacent to the Calder Suite and Red Reception area. There will be a considerable amount of activity within this area from shop fitters and deliveries of large items and it will be in the best safety interests of patients to restrict public access to this area of the car park whilst the work is undertaken.
We will aim to ensure disruption to patients is as minimal as possible and we are looking at ways in which we might ease pressure on the car park during this period as we aware that parking can already be problematic for patients at peak times.
Pedestrian access to both the Calder Suite and Red Reception will not be affected.
The dispensary will remain open as normal throughout this period with the normal route of access. We aim to provide a normal service to patients and it will be ‘business as usual’ throughout January.
Thank you for your understanding during this time.
Dr John's Retirement
We are sad to announce that Dr Mel John is retired on the 2nd of December this year. It goes without saying that he will be sorely missed by all his staff, colleagues and patients. We wish him the very best for the future. Patients with Dr John as their ‘Named GP’ with surnames A-M will be moved to Dr Sam Kadir, while those with surnames N-Z will be moved to Dr Rachel Morgan. Please note, the requirement to have a named GP is stipulated by the government but we do not run individual GP lists at our surgery and patients may see any of the doctors. If you are not aware who your named GP is and would like to know, then please ask at reception the next time you visit the surgery. This information is also printed on the right hand side of your repeat prescriptions. If you have any concerns regarding this matter, please put this in writing to our Practice Management team.
