Welcome to Block Lane Surgery
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.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
Withdrawal of Extended Hours Service
You may be aware that some time ago we introduced some early morning appointments. The rationale for this was to cater for patients who have work commitments and found it difficult to attend at other times.
For some time the number of working patients using this Extended Hours Service has been reducing steadily. To counter the effect of losing the unused appointments, we began to encourage other patients to take up any surplus appointments. We are now finding that virtually all of the appointments are going to patients who do not have working commitments.
Due to this and the fact our doctors are finding it increasingly difficult, due to changes in family circumstances, to commit to the Extended Hours Service, we reluctantly have to withdraw it.
The last Extended Hours session will take place on the morning of Monday 22nd August 2016.
As a practice we offer our apologies to any of our patients whom this may affect. If circumstances change we will try to re-introduce something similar in the future.
Friends and Family Survey
Please feel free to give us your feedback using the Friends and Family Survey.
