Welcome to FirstCare Practice
Wearing Face Coverings When Attending the Surgery
Following recent government guidance we are requesting all patients to wear a face covering when you attend the surgery. Face coverings are different from face masks. Any type of face covering can be worn - We appreciate your support in implementing this request in order to keep yourself and others safe from the Coronovirus.
2 Metre Social Distancing
Please maintain a 2 M social distance from others when you are in the surgery and respect others distance. We have tape across seats where you must not sit to ensure we can keep patients 2 M apart.
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
We are pleased to inform you that CQC has inspected Firstcare practice and it has been rated as GOOD. We will take on board any suggestions that have been made and take action to improve the service we provide further.
