Caring for a parent
Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home
Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.
Taking a break
Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite
Dr Grant is Retiring Soon
We're very sorry to say we will be saying a sad goodbye to Dr Grant at the end of May after nearly 30 years! If you are a registered patient of Dr Grant's, dont worry. All of your care will be transferred over to another GP partner. We will be writing to you to inform you of your new registered GP but please remember, you have the right to see whichever GP you prefer.
We now have an e-newsletter!
We have started up a blog style patient newsletter with all the latest news for the practice- this will include any new services, changes to GP's, upcoming events, staff news etc.
The new blog also gives you an opportunity to become more involved as a patient as well as giving you more information on the practice.

Introducing Our New GP's
We are very happy to announce we will have two new GP's as from April 2016. You may have already seen Dr Griffiths or Dr Forman here already as they have been working with us as locums for a while now. We're excited to say they've decided to stick with us as salaried GP's.
GP Net Earnings 2014/15
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (eg. average pay) for GP's working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The average pay for GPs working for six months or more in Abbey Medical Practice in the last financial year was £62522 before tax and national insurance. This is for 3 full time 2 part time GPs.
Please allow 2 WORKING DAYS between ordering your prescription and collection.
Our dispensary processes over 7,000 items a month and staff work hard to ensure that patients have their medication as quickly as possible. We are unable to speed up requests for patients as this will result in further delays for others awaiting their medication.
Requests to process prescriptions in less than 48 hours will be declined.
Please respect our staff. They are working within strict guidelines to process patient medication safely.
Would you recommend our practice to your friends and family?
The NHS friends and family test (FFT) is an important opportunity for you to provide feedback on the services that provide your care and treatment. Your feedback will help NHS England to improve services for everyone.
