We are very sad to announce that Dr Justin Lawson & Dr Sue Picton have now left our practice.

Dr Lawson will be pursing his medical career throughout the prison service

Dr Picton will be continuing her medical career with her skill of training GP Registrars

Both partners have been an integral part of the practice and will be hugely missed by staff and patients.

We wish them both well for the future

District nurses run clinics in the surgery but also visit patients who are housebound and unable to get out.

When carrying out house calls they are unable to specify exact dates and times that they will be calling as they expect you to be home, however, they do recognise that some housebound patients do have to visit hospitals and day centres at times; If this is the case, when organising your home visit with the nurse, please let them know any relevant information with regards to this.
