THANK YOU!! to everyone who supported our Macmillan coffee morning on Monday 30th Sept. We raised £127.02.

Healthy Lifestyle has started two new groups which we hope will help and support our patients.

Lost Friends is held on Thursdays 1.00-2.30p.m here at the surgery. This group is here to support anyone that has suffered a bereavment. It's a small friendly group aimed at helping each other.

The other group is Breathing Buddies. This is also held on Mondays 3.15-4.15 p.m here at the surgery. If you are a C.O.P.D patient, this is for you! Come along and chat with other patients with the same symptoms and get some support and advise.
