CPN clinic and Memory nurse clinic are hosted in the practice .
The Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) actively supports developing general practice, to improve the care of our patients. Protected learning time is set aside periodically for half-days during the year. This time will be used to bring together staff for educational programmes. Dates are normally advertised in the practice well in advance and also on our website. On those occasions the practice will be closed from 1.00pm.
