Welcome to Castlecroft Medical Practice
As with the whole NHS we continue to experience very high demand for our services and we can reassure patients that we are doing all we can to continue providing the best possible service with the limited resources that we have.
If you need urgent medical assistance when the surgery is closed please call 111 who will advise you accordingly.
Our telephone team are instructed by the GPs to ask you for the nature of your problem to establish who best to book you with or to re-direct you. This is to make best use of the services & appointments that we have available and not to be deliberately obstructive. It is part of a National Programme called Care Navigation - click here for more information.
For minor ailments please see your local pharmacy.
For Dental Problems please see a dentist.

Every month over 250 GP & Nurse appointments are missed by patients when they do not attend (DNA) without ringing to cancel or re-book. This is a huge waste of time and money that also makes it more difficult for other patients to book. The number is slowly falling however is still far too high
