Temporary reduction in Nurse’s appointments

Due to staff shortages we regret we shall be reducing the number of appointments available with our Practice Nurses at both Morland Surgery and Holmwood Health Centre. This will affect our Travel Clinics especially and you may be directed to a travel health clinic elsewhere.

Boots and Superdrug offer this service in their larger stores and other providers are available.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and hope to resume our normal service as soon as possible.

Are You a Carer?

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you

There is a wealth of information on NHS.UK about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
