** FLU CLINICS 2020 *** We have now written to all patients that are eligible for the flu vaccination (those patients aged over 65 as at the 31/3/2021 and all those patients under 65 who have a medical condition who puts them at greater risk. If you are over 65 or under 65 in an at risk category or are a family member of  those patients asked to shield and would like to book a flu jab please contact us urgently. We have also contacted parents/guardians of children that are eligible. Click here for further details for those patients aged 50-64 who weren't previously eligible for the flu vaccine. It is likely that vaccination for this new cohort will not commence until December. GP practices are being asked to focus on their work to get the most vulnerable groups in our community vaccinated first. We will update this message as soon as we have more information from the Government. 
** BLOOD TESTS ** You may have seen the national news about an issue with the stocks of the reagents that Hospitals need to process certain blood tests, this shortage is caused by the supplier Roche and is affecting all hospitals.  The hospitals asked us to cancel many of the blood tests that we provide. We do not yet know how long the hospitals will have this issue. 

** We have installed a new phone system to make it easier for patients to contact us **

Dr JAMES MORRIS (m)Dr JAMES MORRIS (m)
MBBS MRCGP DCH DFFP (Reg. LONDON 1989)
I joined the practice in 1998 having completed a 7 year short service commission in the RAF as a medical officer. My wife is an anesthetist working in the region. My medical interests are varied and include paediatrics and sports medicine. When not at work most of my time is spent with my young family but I am also keen on walking/mountaineering and have recently rediscovered the joy of swimming & running (long may it last!!). I also dabble in woodwork & DIY.
Dr FAISAL MANTO (m)Dr FAISAL MANTO (m)
MBBS DipDerm (Reg. LAHORE 1993)
Following my graduation I took up volunteer work and spent two years in the democratic republic of Congo. After completing my training in General Practice and Diploma in Dermatology in the UK, I joined the practice in 2005 and have thoroughly enjoyed my time working with the excellent team of staff and doctors. I think of my self as a generalist but have also developed an interest in dermatology. When I am not at work, I am busy with my young family of four who keeps me sane and on my toes. I enjoy days out, cooking, eating and (crave) relaxing in my spare time.
Dr JAMES MACKAY (m)

MBBS MRCGPDr_Mackay.JPG
Prior to learning medicine I spent a number of years training horses in the art of classical dressage and eventing with an ex-student of the Spanish riding school of Vienna. Following my GP training, I have developed a very broad interest in all things related to general practice. My wife is also a GP and we are revelling in the experiences and challenges of our young family. A self confessed gadget lover, when not at work, I enjoy most things with an engine, a bag of golf clubs or a lot of open water.
