Surgery news

Unfortunately due to a delivery issue the Practice has not yet received any flu vaccines for patients aged under 65 years.  Therefore we have had to cancel the clinics for patients in this age range. As soon as we receive a confirmed delivery date we will rearrange the clinics. 

The dates and times shown on our home page for patients aged 65 years and over are correct as at 27 September 2019.  


Dr Bayles will be retiring from the practice as of 10th September 2019. We wish her all the best for the future and thank her for the 6 years dedication to the practice.........We would like to welcome Dr H Cho as our new GP to Old Town Surgery. Patients of Dr Bayles will automatically be transferred to Dr Cho's care. Dr Cho has spent a year at our Little Common Surgery finalising his training as a General Practitioner and we are very lucky that he has chosen to remain at the practice.
