June 2015 - Goodbye to Dr Tahhan
It is with regret that we announce that Dr Tahhan will be leaving the practice with effect from the end of June , although she will be coming back during July to provide some short term locum cover. Hala has been with us since August 2013 when she arrived to complete her GP training and will be missed by all her colleagues and patients. She leaves with our very best wishes. We hope to be able to announce her replacement very shortly.

January 2014- Flu jabs -Our best year yet
Over 1700 of our patients have received a flu jab this year -that's 81% of our over 65's and 63% of younger patients who are considered to be 'at risk'. Whilst our campaign is finished, we do still have a few jabs left and would encourage any patient who is in one of the at risk groups to contact us to receive your vaccination.

November 2013 - Stress, anger, depression
We see lots of people who have trouble with stress, depression and anger. Some people feel that before coming to see us they would like to try to sort themselves out but don't know where to start. In the panel on the right we have introduced a new topic 'Stress, depression, anger' under which list some of the local resources that are available to you. These vary from books you can borrow from the library, to internet sites where you can try out CBT (ways of turning negative thoughts into positive thoughts), self help groups and the local psychology services like Let's Talk who will work with you to find the best way to improve things. Whatever the case, if you are not winning do make an appointment to see us.
