Last year 78% of patients were seen within 20 minutes of their appointment time.
London Landmarks Half Marathon
Two of our doctors - Dr Lucy Hickman and Dr Chris Duffy - ran a half marathon on Sunday 25th March to raise money for St Wilfred's centre in Sheffield.
The centre provides care for the homeless, vulnerable and socially excluded.
Well done Lucy and Chris !

10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY
It's hard to believe it's now 10 years since we moved into our current premises.
Many of you will remember the old prefab Health centre and then our time in Portakabins.
When we first moved in we felt we had plenty of space but now it feels like we're bursting at the seams!
Could you give an hour of your time to receive an hour of someone else's time ?
Time Swap is a new scheme operating in Derbyshire - swap time not money !
FLU CLINICS 2018
Last winter the NHS struggled under the weight of respiratory illness. Much of this illness was a direct consequence of high levels of INFLUENZA.
Flu vaccination offers protection against flu and this winter is being offered FREE to more individuals than ever by the NHS.
At risk individuals include :-
- Pregnant women
- Those who live or work in long-stay residential homes
- Those with chronic heart, lung, liver or kidney conditions
- Those whose immune system is compromised
All children aged 2-4 are offered the nasal flu vaccine.
Our Saturday morning flu clinics are always very popular.
This year we’ll be running clinics on the following Saturdays :-
- 29th SEPTEMBER
- 6th OCTOBER
- 20th OCTOBER
- 10th NOVEMBER
- 17th NOVEMBER
We are also holding a flu clinic on Thursday 8th November for anyone who can't make a Saturday.
STAY WELL THIS WINTER — MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR FLU JAB
