Please note that we are closed for training on Thursday 11th February from 1pm and will open again at 8am on Friday. Please call NHS 111 for assistance between these times.
We would like to welcome you to our practice. As a team we provide a wide range of medical services and have long been at the forefront of developments in general practice.
Doctors have been practising at North House for at least a hundred years and, as health professionals, we all like to regard ourselves as 'long-established with progressive attitudes'. We combine the best of the legacy of family doctoring with the best of modern medical care in partnership with you, our patients.
We aim to offer a routine appointment within 5 days. If you feel you need to be seen sooner than the next available appointment, we can offer you a same day telephone consultation with one of our clinicians who will call you back and do an initial assessment, typically within 90 minutes. A course of action will be agreed with you which may include a face to face appointment with a clinician, a referral for tests e.g. blood tests, or the problem may be managed over the phone without the need to visit the surgery.
We now offer the facility to book your appointments, order your repeat prescriptions and view your medical summary, medications, allergies and any adverse reactions.
To use this method we must first issue you with a password.
Please call the surgery or enquire at the reception desk for details.

North House as a Training Practice
North House is a training practice where doctors, already qualified, learn about general practice before becoming GPs themselves. With your approval you may be offered an appointment with one of these doctors.
We have a large car park for the use of patients attending the surgery and this includes two bays near the entrance ramp which are specifically reserved for the disabled. There is also a cycle rack at the North Street end of the car park and a safe pram park.
The car park is essential for less able patients. Please do not leave your car in our car park whilst you shop in the town!
In addition there is ramped access for wheelchairs. We have a practice wheelchair for patients who need help getting into or around the surgery. Please ask the reception staff if you would like to use our wheelchair. If you would like assistance entering the front entrance please ring the bell.
We have an audio loop for the hard of hearing.
As well as looking after your general health and wellbeing, every doctor provides a full range of particular services such as maternity, contraceptive, minor surgery, minor injury and child health surveillance services.
