Our reception desk allows wheelchair-using patients to communicate directly with reception staff and our large car park area has disabled parking spaces and easy flat access into the building. There are also disabled toilet facilities.
All patients are allocated a named GP who is responsible for their overall care. Should you wish to to know who your named GP is, please ask the receptionist. If you have a preference for a particular GP we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request.

Due to unforeseen circumstances Alma will be operating only on one blood technician for a few weeks. Appointments will be a lot less so if you are able to attend the hospital for a blood test it would help us immensely.
Thank you and we will keep you informed regarding the situation.

Measles not only affects the young it can affect older people. If you suspect you may have measles, you have a rash with a fever, please TELEPHONE the surgery first before arriving at the Reception Desk. Where possible if you need to be seen we will arrange an appointment at the end of the surgery to minimise other patient contact and we may direct you to a side room. Please book in via the RECEPTION DESK so these arrangements can be adhered to.
