BUILDING WORKS IN PROGRESS AT THE SURGERY
We are pleased to announce that construction work has commenced at Westdale Lane Surgery which, when completed, will provide four new additional consulting rooms.
The building works are to the rear of the building and as a consequence it has been necessary to close the rear car park for the duration of the work.
Although this has reduced the parking available, you are still able to park in the area between the surgery and the pharmacy. There is also a two hour free pay and display car park a short walk from the surgery.
We anticipate the work to be completed by early March and thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

You can now book routine GP and Nurse appointments in the evening, at weekends and over bank holidays in your local area.
Pre-bookable appointments are available Monday-Friday, 6.30pm-8pm, plus weekends and bank holidays and you can be seen by a GP, Nurse or Healthcare Assistant.
To book your appointment, contact the surgery during normal opening hours. Please be aware that the appointment may take place at another GP Practice in the area.
