We are pleased to inform patients that the new partnership with Dr Hussain and Dr Haris is now in place.  We have embraced the NHS five year forward view and have a team of Advanced Nurse Practitioners working alongside a new team of Doctors and nursing staff.  We are committed to establishing a team that will work together to make care better for patients.

We are also pleased to have Angela Powell and Maggie Hughes on board as the new Practice Manager and Assistant Practice Manager respectively who will work with the Partners and Practice team in moving the practice forward.

Telephone Access

We have been working closely with the telephone company and conveyed feedback from patients and staff regarding telephone wait times.  As of 30th April 2019 a call queuing system has been introduced and the practice will continue to monitor this closely.  We appreciate the time patients take in giving feedback as this helps to improve our services.

Online appointments

The number of pre-bookable online appointments with Doctors and Advanced Nurse Practioners have been increased.  Booking appointments online saves time for patients and also reduces the call waiting times on the phone as you can make an appointment online anywhere anytime without delay.
