Self Care Week 13-19th November 2017
This week is Self Care Week!
Self care is about keeping fit and healthy, understanding when you can look after yourself, when a pharmacist can help and when to get advice from your GP or another health professional.
If you have a long-term condition, self care is about understanding that condition and how to live with it.

Have a great week!
A Big Thank you!...

All of our patients have a 'named GP' responsible for their care. This is largely a role of oversight, with the NHS requirements being introduced to reassure patients that they have one GP within the practice who is responsible for ensuring that this work is carried out on their behalf. If you would like to know who your named GP is, then please ask at reception. Patients are still free to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice in line with current arrangements.
The named GP will not:
- take on vicarious responsibility for the work of other doctors or health professionals
- take on 24-hour responsibility for the patient, or have to change their working hours. The requirement does not imply personal availability for GPs throughout the working week
- be the only GP or clinician who will provide care to that patient
