It is with some sadness that I want to let you know that I have decided to leave New Road Surgery at the end of June 2020.
I have spent over 26 happy years working within what I believe is the best General Practice Team anywhere.
I have grown up with many of you and look upon you as more than ‘patients’. I want to thank you for the huge compliment that you have paid me by trusting me to look after and help you. I promise you that I have got as much from all of you as I have given.
As you may have noticed, I have always had an interest in, and love of both Womens’, and Psychological health- over recent years I have developed a specialist interest in the Menopause, and I now have the opportunity to work in that field both within the NHS, and in the private sector. This will allow me more flexibility than I am able to have working in General Practice, to support my family, to do some volunteer work, and to travel ( if possible!) as well as continuing to do what I love – which is to practice Medicine.
I have always worked for the out of hours service and plan to continue to do so, so I may meet you there from time to time.
Once again, Thank You for the Last 26 Years – I know that I leave you with The Best GP Team this side of anywhere.

CORONAVIRUS - BEWARE OF SCAMMERS
There is heightened coverage around the recent Coronavirus outbreak around the world, which is now severely impacting on the UK and the NHS.
Unfortunately fraudsters are targeting these circumstances to take advantage of public fear and concern.
We have been made aware that our patients are receiving phone calls, texts and letters from fraudsters. They will try and obtain your personal details and in particular your NHS number.
Scammers are sophisticated, opportunistic and will try many ways to get the information they want. They often target the vulnerable.
If you are suspicious, do not give any details over the phone, hang up and then ring your GP Practice to confirm.
PRESCRIPTION MAY TAKE LONGER THAN USUAL PLEASE ALLOW 3 WORKING DAYS FOR YOUR PRESCRIPTION TO BE READY.
Please remember you can request your prescription by email:
We are receiving a lot of requests for prescriptions that are not due yet - we are sorry but in line with our usual procedures prescriptions requested too early will be rejected.
Since the foundation of the NHS in 1948, the New Road premises have been used, without interruption, as a medical practice. Dr Cheetham retired in June 2018 after 30 years at New Road Surgery, many local residents will remember Dr Mike Cooper, Dr Roy Glover, and a few may remember Dr Nathan from the post war years when the practice was founded. The complexity of medical treatments may have changed, but the ethos of traditional General Practice continues unabated.
We have a friendly, professional and dedicated team, still providing the level of care that has been a hallmark of the practice for so many years.
The aim of this website is to provide information about the practice to help you make the best use of the full range of GP services we offer. Patient comments on additional information that could be included on this website are welcome.
We are registered with the Care Quality Commission www.cqc.org.uk
