If you believe you may be pregnant we are unable to perform pregnancy testing here in the practice as we are no longer supplied with the kits to do this by GG&C.
We would ask that you purchase a pregnancy kit at any Pharmacy and carry out the test before you make an appointment with the GP or Practice Nurse. Kits are available from as little as a few pounds and are just as accurate as more expensive tests. Alternatively, if you are unable to fund a kit we can send a sample of urine to the lab for testing however results will not be available for 4-5 days.

Appointment Time Keeping - Please Help Us
We have become aware of an increase in patient late attendance for appointments. This places stress on practice resources and has an impact on waiting times for other patients who have attended on time.
If you attend late for an appointment, it is very likely you will be asked to re-appoint.
We appreciate that sometimes surgeries can run late, because an urgent situation has arisen or because some patients require more time with the GP/Nurse. You would be offered the same courtesy, should you require it.
If you are continuously late for appointments, or very late cancelling appointments, we will deem this to be a breakdown of doctor/patient relationship and you will be removed from our practice list.
We would appreciate your co-operation with this.
