Patient Access




Our practice came into being in November 1980 when Dr Burton joined Dr Middleton in partnership. In those days the surgery occupied three rooms at the back of the village hall. In August 1981 the present purpose-built premises were completed and later extended in 1990. Dr Bone joined the partnership in June 1997 and Dr Harvey in October 2001 (when Dr Middleton retired). The surgery team was joined by Dr Nawaz in November 2004. Dr Moerdyk became a partner in March 2013 upon Dr Burton's retirement and Dr Mowbray joined us in September of that year.

Practice News and Notices


Important Announcement
Dr. Moerdyk

 As I am sure that many of you are already aware, Dr. Moerdyk is due to start a period of maternity leave on Friday, 17th April. Dr. Moerdyk also has some annual leave owing to her which she will be taking prior to her maternity leave. Dr. Moerdyk’s last working day before her leave commences will therefore be on Thursday, 26th March.

During Dr. Moerdyk’s absence from work, Dr. Rowan Harrison, will be joining us to provide cover for four of the six clinical sessions per week which Dr. Moerdyk presently provides. Dr. Harrison’s working days will be on Monday (all day) and Wednesday (all day) each week.
To allow us to fully cover the six sessions which Dr. Moerdyk presently provides, Dr. Annalise Mowbray, who has been with us since September 2013, will be working an additional two clinical sessions per week throughout Dr. Moerdyk’s absence.

Have you ever wished that you could e-mail your repeat prescription requests to the surgery rather than wait for the telephone ordering facility to be available? Well now you can!

With immediate effect, patients can e-mail their repeat prescription requests to the surgery at any time of the day (or night).
Simply send an e-mail to the address below specifying your name and address, your patient number (if known) and details of the drugs you need to order and staff will then deal with your request during normal office hours.




***** PLEASE NOTE - the Medical Centre will be closed on the afternoon of Wednesday, 13th May 2015

Extended Opening Hours Service

Please be advised that the format of our Extended Opening Hours (EOH) service will be changing slightly with immediate effect. The EOH service provides a total of 4 hours EOH service provision each week. That level of service will not change.

Up until now the EOH service has operated on Tuesday and Thursday evenings each week with one doctor on duty between 18.30 hours and 20.30 hours.

With immediate effect the EOH service will alternate each week between a Tuesday evening surgery and a Thursday evening surgery. The surgery will still run from 18.30 hours to 20.30 hours. The difference will be that there will be two doctors on duty each evening instead of one doctor as happens now.

EOH appointments are STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT ONLY and subject to availability of appointments.  Please phone on 01327 265841 to arrange an appointment.




Summary Care Records - Your emergency care summary

The Public Information Programme is due to be rolled out in early February. This means all of our patients will receive a letter explaining what the Summary Care Record is, what it will contain, how it will be used and by whom. An opt out form will also be included with the letter. Children under 16 will automatically have a SCR created for them unless a parent or guardian chooses to opt them out.  

For more information on the Summary Care Record, visit or or telephone the dedicated NHS Summary Care Record Information Line on 0300 123 3020 where an operator will be available to answer any queries you may have.
