Patient notice

Fernbank Surgery is currently going through some staff changes which may create longer waiting times for patients when  booking appointments.

We have recruited a new GP partner who will join the practice in January 2019, and a further GP is scheduled to begin work in March 2019.

In addition, we are also trying to recruit a new advanced nurse practitioner.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this time and thank our patients for their patience and support.

Once again, we thank all our patients for their support and are confident that normal service will be resumed very soon once we have new members of our clinical team in place.
