Practice Extension Update

We are pleased to advise that the building worksare now complete.

We would like to thank all our patients for their understanding when we have not been able to offer services as usual due to the constraints of the building works.

In addition to the improved facilities,  two new doctors have now joined our practice easing access to services.  Dr Paul Bethell and Dr Tatiana Leichenko joined our team on 1 March 2016.

Thank you for your co-operation and understanding in this matter.
