********* TELEPHONE PROBLEM ********
We continue to have intermittent problems with the telephone system. Some calls are being cut off mid-conversation. BT and the IT Department are aware of the problem. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
The Integrated Care Centre is open 7 days a week for access to the Urgent Care Centre and has suitable access for all disabled patients.

Dr Perkins' Practice is a single-handed practice, with only 1 GP, and as such Dr Brian Perkins is the named accountable GP for all current and new patients registered or registering with the practice.
