You must live within our practice area to remain registered with us - look at the practice area map in the New Patients tab to check where you live.

Car Park

The University has introduced Pay & Display around our car park at the back of the surgery. Patients attending the surgery for 90 minutes or less can park without charge in the car park area closest to the surgery.

Named Doctor

All patients have a named doctor and you will be informed who that is when you register for the first time. However we have an "open list policy" which means you are welcome to see whichever doctor you choose but we would strongly advise trying to see a consistent doctor, especially for long term health conditions. Please see here for more information.
