Wednesday Closing


The Practice is closed ONCE a month for staff development and training.  Our Doctors, Nursing and administrative staff do need time to train together, which is vital to improve service delivery.  The next date is Wednesday 22nd May 2013.  We DO NOT close on other Wednesday afternoons.

Care When we are Closed

In the event that we are closed you can seek advice by phoning NHS 111 for non-emergency symptoms, or by contacting your pharmacist.  If these services suggest you need to seek urgent care then Primary Care 24, at King's Mill Hospital, provides a 24 hour walk in service.

Please only go to Accident & Emergency if it is an emergency.
