We don’t need to wait until we are struggling with our mental health; ‘Every Mind Matters’ encourages adults to be more aware of their mental health and help them discover simple steps to look after their mental health and wellbeing.
The campaign provides useful resources to help you spot the signs of common mental health concerns, offering practical self-care tips and guidance, and explains when to seek further support. There is a free NHS-approved online tool on the Every Mind Matters website, which helps you build an action plan to deal with stress and anxiety, boost your mood, improve your sleep and help you feel more in control.

Car Park Management Service
The car park is now managed by Creative Car Park Management Service at all times (including weekends/bank holidays).
It is highly recommended that your car is registered with reception or pharmacy at any time of attending.
Patients visiting the surgery/pharmacy will need to register their car registration plate every time when attending.
There is a drop off period of 10 minutes maximum without the need to register your car number.
There is a time allowance of 90 minutes maximum to park for your appointment/visit.
Please be aware anytime exceeding the above times will be liable to a fine of £100.
The practice will provide patients on the Frailty Register, who have urgent clinical enquiries, with same day telephone consultation and where required follow-up arrangements (e.g. home visits, face-to-face consultation visit by community team etc).
The same day telephone consultation will be with the duty doctor and not necessarily their named GP.
