Did you know that you can book Dr's appointments, order repeat medication & view your medical record online. If you have not already registered for this service speak to a receptionist to register for online access. Proof of ID will be required.

You can now book routine GP, Nurse & HCA appointments in the evening, at weekends & over bank holidays in the local area.To book an appointment, contact the surgery during normal opening hours.*This may take place at another GP practice in the area*

We have extremely big hearted GPs, though a little wacky!!!  Three of them have very kindly decided to raise money for Eastwood Memory Cafe with a totally amazing challenge.  I would be really grateful if you could share this with anyone and everyone you know, so we can hopefully reach the target set. 


Please see the following link:


In order to support the amazing work of Eastwood Memory Cafe; we have set ourselves the challenge of collectively running the equivalent distance of Eastwood to The Pyramids of Giza, 2200 miles, by the end of 2018 and would love to raise the same number in £s - £2200!!!

Please support this fabulous charity which makes such a difference to those affected by dementia in our local area.

Feel free to keep nagging us to get those running miles in. We will give monthly updates with progress toward our target!

 button Immunisation Advice

42-16788906.jpgIt is very important that children and babies are fully immunised. Illnesses such as diphtheria, tetanus and polio are, thankfully, rare now because of recent immunisation policies. Whooping cough (pertussis) causes a very distressing illness with severe prolonged coughing and it is strongly recommended that all babies have this vaccination along with their other baby injections (there are very few contra-indications).

If you have any worries or queries about any aspect of your child’s immunisations, please feel free to discuss them with your doctor, the practice nurse or the health visitor.
