Change in Partnership
Dr Melanie McCulloch is leaving the partnership at the end of June 2016. Dr Andrew
Seagrave is joining Dr Ayles and Dr Rigg as of the 1st July 2016. He is looking
forward to meeting his new patients.
Both Practices are offering extended hours after 6pm. Drs Ayles Rigg & McCulloch
on Monday, Wednesday & Thursday evenings.
Our Practices are assisting in the training and teaching of final year medical students
and you may therefore be asked if you mind a student being present during your consultation.
You will always be asked for permission before any such consultation and if you prefer,
they will not be present.
Most of our local pharmacies provide a prescription pick up service. If you feel
you would benefit from this service, please inform one of the reception staff.
