Understanding General Practice, Michael Wright Local Medical Council Following negative and damaging coverage about general practice in the media, our Chief Executive Michael Wright, has produced a video to help patients understand some of the unique challenges that practices face daily. You can access the video here if you wish to share it on your social platforms to help raise awareness and understanding amongst your patient populations. The Institute of General Practice Management (IGPM) has also put a video together to raise awareness of the abuse that practice staff receive from patients. You can access their video here.

We can issue back dated sick notes if you are unable to come in on a particular day or appointments are limited.If you have only just come out of hospital but have a discharge note we can use that as evidence and provide you with cover.Please speak to one of the partners for advice if in doubt we will normally answer your calls at the end of morning surgery.
