Dr Peter Twomey is now on sabbatical, returning in July.
Dr Emma Parker will be going on maternity leave from the end of May.
Unfortunately due to a shortage of GP Locums currently, we have not been able to secure long-term locums to cover our absences, however we are endeavouring to make sure all clinics will be covered.
Our current health promotion topic is 'Mental Health'. In the main surgery waiting area we have many different leaflets on display as well as our usual beautifully decorated noticeboard.
For all services available locally, you can use the 'Pinpoint' link below. We are currently constructing a handout of all local counselling services which we will post on here soon.
Please use this link to find a whole host of information about services in your area :-)
