GP Hours

Recruitment of new doctors is still proving to be difficult and we are still short of one full time GP. 

Dr Buttar has now increased his working week to 3 days and is a valued member of the team

Dr Locke and Dr McLean have now reduced their surgery hours.  Therefore their availability is limited so please consider seeing another GP

We may need to continue to adjust the way in which we work in order to provide a service to our 6,500 patients

Dr Locke

From 4th September Dr Locke will be reducing the number of patient surgeries, so therefore please consider seeing another GP rather than waiting
