Clifton Road Surgery will be holding flu vaccination clinics on Saturday mornings starting from Saturday 28th September. We will also be holding drop in clinics at the surgery every day from 9am - 12pm and 2pm - 4pm. Please come into the surgery and ask at reception.

Clifton Road Surgery would like to announce the arrival of our new Salaried GP, Dr Gower.  Dr Gower started as our salaried GP in August 2019 and holds clinics all day Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.  With this in mind we wanted to remind you that every patient has a named GP.  Now Dr Gower is in place it has been necessary to allocate him as named GP to some of our patients.  Please note, anyone concerned or wanting clarification of their named GP can speak to Reception.  Please be assured those patients we will be changing will not be having regular on-going appointments/care.  If any patient has objections we will, of course, put you back to your previous GP.  We have consulted with our PPG who support the Practice in undertaking this.
