The Practice will be changing the appointment system from mid January 2014. To keep our patients updated regarding the changes we will be posting information on the practice website and in the surgery over the next few weeks.
The programme that the Practice has decided to adopt is called 'Dr First'. This is currently being used successfully in many surgeries across the country.
