Announcement: GP Retirement

Dr John Currie is retiring from his role at the surgery.  His last working will be Thursday 6th October 2022.

He has been part of our team for over 17 years and has seen lots of changes in general practice, but we have all enjoyed working with him over the years.

He will be missed very much by the team and I am sure by many of our patients.

Enjoy your retirement Dr Currie, hope you have lots of adventures.

Nurses

Mrs Sarah Shimmin (f)

Practice Nurse

Practice Nurse

Nurse Hannah Quayle (f)

Our Practice Nurses deal with all sorts of things, from dressings to ear syringing; travel vaccinations to minor ailments such as sore throats. They also run clinics on, for example, asthma, blood pressure, heart disease, contraception, osteoporosis, smears and smoking cessation.

You can make an appointment to see them during Surgery hours. When you do ask for an appointment, we will usually ask what it is for. This is so we can gauge what length of appointment to give you and also so that we can fit you in with the right nurse, as they sometimes have different specialist areas.
