A family practice that is proud to be an important part of the local community.

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 currently trying to minimise the number of patients that come to the practice to reduce the chances of infecting each other and staff. Most consultations will be by telephone (at times with video) or on the day and patients will be asked to confirm they have no symptoms before being given a face to face appointment. Non-urgent routine reviews will be carried out by phone or delayed. Essential injections, vaccinations and procedures will go ahead. On-line bookable appointments will be restricted to telephone appointments. We need all patients to be able to have their prescriptions sent direct to the pharmacy. Sick notes will be sent to you wherever possible by text or email. Please do not come to the practice to ask for an appointment. Our doors are now closed most of the time. Knock on the window if you genuinely need to speak to us or if you have been called in for an appointment. We are taking extra steps to regularly clean communal areas. Please use the hand sanitisers provided and wash your hands. You do not need sick notes for 7-day or 14-day self-isolation. Please speak to your employer. We are looking at ways of staying in touch with the most vulnerable of our patients with the help of local organisations. Wishing you all the best during a difficult time.
Dr Ewa Craven.

Our Building - Dardsley
Our building has a fascinating history. It was built in 1886 by the Sharples family, as their home and doctor's practice. Dr Thomas Sharples and his son Dr Sydney Sharples lived and worked there over the following 65 years. From 1951 to 2008 the building was expanded to host the Prescription Pricing Bureau. Our Doctor Doctor project is revealing more of this history and capturing wonderful local memories of what it has been like going to the doctor over the last 135 years!
