Welcome to Central Surgery
Please be aware that we have a network issue in the building at present. All our phones and computers are currently down.
We are a dynamic and friendly surgery who are committed to providing excellent care and patient satisfaction.
We have a number of clinicians who have special interests to provide a variety of clinics and services to meet our patients' needs such as chronic disease management (eg. Diabetes, Asthma, COPD clinics etc.), phlebotomy, minor operations (including acupuncture) and childhood vaccinations. We have extended hours Mon-Fri. We operate from a DDA compliant building which was built in 2013. There is wheelchair access and a hearing loop installed at our reception desk.
We apologise in advance if you have a long wait to get through on the telephone. We have a number of staff off sick which has left us extremely short. We would advise our patients to try and call later in the day or book online, our emergency appointments on the day are released online at the same time they are opened up for the receptionists on the telephone at 8.00 am. If you are experiencing severe breathlessness or/and heart pain, please call 999.
