Off The Record – December 2016

On the 5th November we were pleased to invite representatives from the Council, the Patient Participation Group, members of staff and those involved in the build to the official opening of our two new Consulting Rooms. The building of these rooms was aided by the NHS England Primary Care Infrastructure Fund, which give the surgery 66% of the cost of the replacement of the two temporary consulting rooms in the Portakabin. I am sure you will agree that these rooms are a great improvement to the previous temporary rooms and allow us to provide appropriate care and provide better access for disabled patients.



We are pleased to announce the arrival of a few new members of staff to the Surgery.

We are very pleased to welcome Dr. Rebecca Hall who is joining us as a salaried Doctor who will be working at the surgery three days a week. Dr. Hall is a very experienced GP who has previously worked in Worcestershire.

We are also pleased to welcome two new members to the team in the Dispensary, Alex Baker who is a Pharmacist and also Lynn Tutty who will be working with the team as a dispenser. We hope that with these new appointments we will be able to continue the excellent service that our dispensary provides.

It is now approaching Christmas and in order to help the dispensary team please can you only order over the Christmas period if you are going to run out at this time and otherwise please can you allow a week when ordering prescriptions in December.


All at the surgery wish you a Merry Christmas and a very Happy and Healthy New Year


Dr H Deer
