It is with regret that patients will no longer be able to park on Elgar House car park. We have had to make this difficult decision as there have been instances where doctors have not been able to exit the car park in emergencies putting patient's health at risk, There has also been damage to staff cars and sadly staff have received verbal abuse.

Within the next few weeks Parking Eye, a member of the British Parking Association will be issuing fines for unauthorised vehicles parked.


Further to our recent patient survey, we have added a new phone line for prescription queries, which we hope will free up our main lines for patients who want to book appointments.  The new number is 01527 63770.

New Mothers should consult their doctor to confirm their pregnancy and arrange their ante-natal care. Most patients are referred to the Maternity Department of the local Alexandra Hospital, and the maternity care is shared with hospital staff and the community midwives.

The doctors in the practice like to examine new babies when they are eight weeks old, combining this with Mum’s post-natal check.  The baby also has its first immunizations at this visit.


Appointments and advice are available with any doctor or Family Planning nurse at any time during surgery hours. As with all our services, it is COMPLETELY CONFIDENTIAL.

Teenagers are welcome, again in total confidence. Emergency contraception is available and should be started within 72 hours.

Condoms are available from reception at any time.

Cervical Smears

We recommend that all our female patients should have a smear performed every 3 years from age 25 – 49 and every 5 years from 50 – 64. The purpose of this test is to prevent cancer of the cervix.  The procedure is normally carried out by the practice nurses.


Patients can be referred to our Counsellor by any G.P.
