We intend to be part of our local community and a centre for excellence in the provision of primary healthcare, with in-house provision of a range of medical services.

You may occasionally have consultations with one of these doctors under direct supervision. We will provide these services by maintaining an efficient and user-friendly business. We are a Personal Medical Services (PMS) Contract Practice.
Our aim at the Prince of Wales Surgery is to provide comprehensive, friendly, professional and personal service, with time to discuss our patients’ healthcare concerns. We endeavour to make it easy for our patients to make an appointment to see their doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional.

The practice has introduced a feedback system called the Friends and Family Test for all patients and carers to let us know how we are performing. To access this please use the link above that will take you to the questionnaire. There will be facilities in the surgery to give your feedback electronically or on paper.
We welcome all feedback as it allows us to review how we are providing care and where we may need to consider changes.
Please remember that you can always give feedback via the NHS Choices website as well.
