Welcome to Alpine House Surgery
The practice was established in 1984. Since this time, the practice has undergone major extension and refurbishment in order to keep up with the demands of an ever changing primary care. All consulting rooms are on the ground floor and are designed to meet the needs of all our patients, particularly those with disabilities.
We have a small car park with limited spaces for Patients. There is on street parking available within the area, but we do ask all patients to park responsibly.
The practice prides itself on providing good quality family medicine, delivered in a well organised and timely manner by well trained and motivated professional staff.
PLEASE HEAD TO THE NEWS SECTION TO FIND OUR LATEST NEWSLETTER WITH ALL UPTO DATE PRACTICE NEWS.
The surgery is currently experiencing extremely high demand accompanied by a shortage of clinicians and difficulty obtaining locum cover. In order to maintain patient safety we will only be able to deal with very urgent issues today. Please be aware you may have to wait longer than usual for your call to be answered and you may be advised to attend the walk in centre or referred, if appropriate, to the community pharmacy scheme.
Your patience is appreciated in these difficult circumstances.
