Monthly Staff Training Closures

The world of medicine is an ever changing one, which is why we need to ensure that all of our team members are up to speed with the latest developments, regulations and improvements in patient care. This includes our team of receptionists, who need, among other things, to be confident in their life support training, should there be an emergency in the waiting room.

To make this training really effective, we need to train the team all together at the same time. Consequently, on the third Tuesday of every month the surgery will be closed from 1pm and reopen as usual the following day at 8:15am. If you require medical advice or assistance please call the NHS service on 111. Please note all calls are free to this number.
