Reduced service afternoons – 1st & 3rd Wednesday of the month.

The surgery closes for normal service on the first Wednesday of the month from 1pm and has done so for many years, so that we can ensure our staff can undertake mandatory training.

After consulting with our local ICB and our PPG we have made the decision to implement this on an additional afternoon each month.

From 2nd January the surgery will also be closed for normal service on the 1st & 3rd Wednesday of the month from 1pm.

On the 1st Wednesday of the month, as usual there will be no access to dispensary or reception, you will be able to reach us by phone for urgent matters.

On the 3rd Wednesday of the month there WILL still be access to dispensary to collect prescriptions and you CAN still reach reception by phone for urgent matters but the majority of our clinical staff will be in training.

This proposal is for a duration of approximately 6-months while we implement important staff training and development sessions.

If you’d like more details about the content that is planned for these sessions and the reason for this additional reduced service session, we would advise you see the minutes of our PPG meeting which are displayed on our PPG section of this website.

Please note: We have increased our appointment capacity around these afternoons which ensures that appointment availability is not affected.
