Training Closures

To ensure that our staff are properly trained, the practice takes part in internal and external training sessions.  To minimise confusion, sessions take place on Wednesdays wherever possible.

The practice also takes part in the City Wide training sessions.  The practice is open as usual until 12 noon, after which you can telephone 111 for advice.
