Albert Road Surgery

Please Note: Dr McManus is having routine treatment and will be away from the practice until further notice. We regret that we are unable to accept new patients/temporary residents during this time.

Welcome

Our Practice is highly patient focused and we aim to deliver the best care for our patients by combining the skills of the practice team with that of other healthcare professionals and voluntary organisations where appropriate.

We provide modern health care facilities and focus on continually improving the health of our patients and residents of the community.

Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided.

Named GP

All patients now have Dr McManus as their named GP – unless you have requested Dr Ash.  Please note you will always be offered an appointment with either GP at the surgery.

Sharing your information

To ensure you receive the most comprehensive treatment, we share information with other healthcare professionals when needed.  All healthcare professionals are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as our own staff.  If you wish to opt out of this then please contact the surgery.

******************************

* Despite increasing financial pressures on General Practice throughout the NHS, our practice has opted to keep extended opening hours for our patients – did you know we run a late night GP surgery from 6:30pm – 8pm every Wednesday evening?

We hope this helps to deliver easy access to GP appointments for those patients who may be unavailable to attend appointments throughout the day e.g. those people who work.

All appointments are pre-bookable (and to be honest, they often get booked up pretty quickly) but they can be helpful if you want to make a future appointment e.g. a review of your medication in a few weeks time. If you’d like to make a late night appointment please speak to a member of our reception team.
