You will need to switch your hearing aid to the ‘T’ position.

Why not join our patient participation group?

We have set up a Patient Participation Group (PPG).  This new Patients' and Carers' Group will meet at our practice on a regular basis and we hope that you would be able to join us for our first meeting.  any patient and/or carer who is registered with our practice can join our PPG.  The membership is open and we are encouraging our patients to join the group in order to engage with our staff and help us provide the best services for you.  Please note this is a VOLUNTARY activity. Refreshments will be made available for attendees and the meeting will last no longer than an hour and a half. Please speak to a member of the reception team if you are interested in attending the next meeting.
