and in addition be a useful resource for other health related information.

Treatment of dental problems/infections
As recommended by the British Medical Association (BMA) we are unable to provide treatment for Dental problems/infections, the General Medical Council (GMC) requires doctors to have appropriate skills for any treatment that they offer. We advise patients with dental problems to contact their registered dentist in the first instance, however, GPs can provide advice to ascertain that the conditioni requires only dental treatment. If you do not have a registered dentist, access to emergency dental services can be arranged by contacting NHS 111. The practice is unable to re-issue any prescriptions prescribed by a dentist.
Month of birth recall system
We are in the process of redesigning our recall system. We plan to invite patients for a yearly review of their medical conditions and any current medication they have, during the month of their birthday. By doing this we are trying to avoid the inconvenience of patients receiving several invitations throughout the year.
