We are a training practice, with one of our core values being the education and development of the next generation of doctors. We see this as being extremely important and as such we run an active teaching programme for both undergraduate medical students and post graduate doctors pursuing higher training to become specialists in general practice. We are very grateful to our patients for their active participation in this education. You also have the option to opt out of seeing a trainee if you want to.
Medical students and nurses also occasionally visit for teaching puposes and may sit with a doctor or nurse to observe a surgery. Sometimes we may videotape surgeries for training purposes, but confidentiality is strictly observed and your permission is sought. If you do not wish to have an observer or be videod please let the receptionist or doctor know at the time.
There is disabled parking outside our Guildersfield Road and Baldry Garden Sites.
There are nine consulting rooms on the ground floor and there is disabled access to a toilet. A lift at the Baldry Gardens site provides access to the first floor consulting rooms.

Practice News and Notices
Patient Participation Group (PPG) Awareness Week
1st - 6th June
You can make a difference in your practice by joining our Practice Group. A PPG is a group of patients in the same GP practice who meet regularly to:
Gather and give patients' views on services
Work with the practice to devlop and improve services for patients
To find out more ask our practice staff or pick up a leaflet in the practice.
This is equivalent to 2.75weeks’ of GP appointments.
The current waiting time for a routine appointment is 2.5 weeks.
Pollen counts are highest in the morning and the early evening. It is best to avoid being outdoors at these times. There are 3 types of medicine helpful in hayfever: eye drops (sodium cromoglicate), nasal spray (beclometasone) and antihistamines (e.g. cetirizine, loratadine etc). Antihistamines work best if taken regularly on a daily basis as their effect builds up over time. All of these are available from pharmacies and supermarkets. You may request supplies on prescription by filling in a request and dropping it into us, or by emailing your request. The prescription will be available 2 days later at Guildersfield Road surgery.
IF YOU REPEATEDLY FAIL TO ATTEND FOR APPOINTMENTS YOU MAY BE REMOVED FROM THE PRACTICE LIST AND HAVE TO FIND AN ALTERNATIVE GP PRACTICE.
