The doctors work in partnership and they all provide general medical care, maternity, contraceptive advice, minor surgery, health promotion and child health surveillance services. We are able to fit IUCD (contraceptive coils) in Practice and this service is performed by Dr Sarah Savage and Dr Yolanda Diez following an initital consultation with her.
Patients with chronic diseases will be reviewed regularly often at the times of their medication review. Please alternate between the doctor and nurse to ensure your benefit from the full care. From 1 April 2004 certain standards have been set by the Government for the care of chronic disease which can only be achieved by seeing the nurse as well as the doctor.
We ask however that you see the same doctor for follow-up of chronic diseases and other problems so that he/she is in a good position to oversee your care.
Our Practice Nurses, Sue Paul, Jane Clarke and Alison Draffan are responsible for all aspects of health promotion, holiday vaccinations, dressings, routine chronic disease management. We also have a Healthcare Assistant, Marion Waite, who is responsible for some aspect of patient care ie BP checks, Phlebotomy and new patient checks.
Clinics are held at each of our surgeries.
If you are a housebound patient - a home visit can be arranged for you.

We are a registered Yellow Fever Centre and are able to offer this service to travellers, whether or not they are registered with the practice. Full payment is required before the vaccination is given.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
