The practice is closed on the last Thursday of each month from 13:00 to 16:30 for staff training. Your doctors and the practice team need to keep up to date with the latest treatments and techniques. To do that they have to undergo continuous professional development and training. This is to benefit our patients and is compulsory for staff to retain their professional registration
