The persisting crisis in the NHS has had a huge impact on General Practice. With an ageing population and the complex medical needs of patients rising we have seen a significant increase in the demands on GP surgeries. We have also seen a large number of GP’s retiring from the profession and a huge decrease in the number of GP’s willing to take on Partnership positions in practice.


We have advertised for new partners since Dr Peter retired in 2016 without success. Therefore this situation has unfortunately led to Dr Michael and Dr Nuala making the decision to transfer the responsibility of managing the practice to the Health Board in an attempt to try and find a solution. In practical terms this means that in 6 months time the running of the practice will be

taken over by the Health Board.


Currently we are confident that a solution can be found and that the impact on patients and staff will be minimal.


The doctor will see you in the surgery by appointment. You can make an appointment by either calling in at reception or by telephone. An appointment will usually be available within 48 hours.

If the doctor of your choice is not available, you may be offered an appointment with another doctor in the practice.

Practice Nurses

In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many conditions and you may be seen more quickly.


If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.

DNA (did not attend) appointments

In the face of an ever increasing workload and the fact that we are a Doctor down since the retirement of Dr Peter MacSorley the remaining Partners are very concerned about the rising rate in did not attend (DNA) missed appointments. Last month 111 patients did not attend their GP appointment. This equates to a full week of appointments for one full time Doctor. We may have to review the registration of patients who persistently DNA appointments.
