Referral update
We now have access to the referral system, it will change the way you have to book the hospital.

Details on the referrals page.


  • Dr Beerstecher received a suspension by the GMC on 19th November 2018 for two months to start on the 18th December.
  • The health authority has to terminate the contract if the only doctor is not allowed to work.
  • The option to keep the surgery open for patient care would therefore have to involve another practice to bridge the 2-month suspension gap, and it would require the health authority to allow Dr Beerstecher back.
  • We have been in negotiations with the health authority from the 22nd November, but we were unable to negotiate for the surgery to continue.
  • Unfortunately we were not in a position to continue the practice or save the jobs of the staff despite negotiations for over three weeks.

We would like to thank everyone for all the support we have had over the last 18 years.

We have tried to provide a service that prioritises access to quality clinical care, the practice crest has represented our intention of quality first, quality first and quality first.
