Old Parsonage Surgery Newsletter




A Warm Introduction to our Surgery and Team

Welcome to the first edition of our newsletter!

We are excited to share insights about Old Parsonage Surgery and our dedicated multidisciplinary team. Being a small surgery, of which caters to around 3,800 patients, we believe in comprehensive and compassionate care, and pride ourselves on our commitment to putting patients first.

Our team consists of various healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, as well as administrative staff, such as receptionists and secretaries. Collectively, we are here to ensure your well-being is our top priority.


Latest Practice News

We have recently renovated our surgery and did this with both patients and staff in mind. This refurbishment has resulted in the addition of a quieter waiting room for patients who might need it, as well as a dedicated staff room and kitchen to provide colleagues a break.

We have also recently dispatched text message notifications to patients due for their annual health check-ups related to long-term conditions. If you have received a message, please kindly get in touch with the surgery to schedule your appointment.

Over the festive period, the surgery will be closed on:
