We close the practice for 5 afternoons a year to provide important and mandatory training for staff. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Services near you
It is not always obvious who or where to go to when you are ill or injured. Many people go to A+E when there are other services that could better help them.
NHS Gloucestershire has developed a website and app that will show you all the options available according to the problem you have. It can also show you the services nearest to you.
Allocating Usual GPs
We assign all our patients a usual or accountable GP who is generally responsible for that patient's care. We do endeavour to keep patients under the same GP where possible to maximise continuity of care. However, this does not affect your right to see any GP of your choice. If you do not already know who your accountable GP is and you would like to please phone reception who will be happy to inform you.
