There are many different types of skin rashes and many different causes of a skin rash. Most skin rashes are harmless but some may need treatment from your doctor. Some rashes (especially dark red or purple rashes that don't fade with pressure) may need urgent medical treatment.
It is important to identify the rash quickly therefore. The links below have information on many of the main types and causes of rash, and the appropriate treatments.
On Monday 9 July 2018 we are launching our improved appointment system to ensure that all patients have access to the right health care professional at the right time, first time.
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice, the required disclosure is shown here.
Dr David Lightwing, who has worked in the practice for 19 years, has now retired and we wish him well in the future. We are also pleased to announce that Dr Tim Longmore has now taken on the role of Senior Partner for the practice.
In addition to overseeing prescription management systems, Andy will be providing appointments for medication reviews and will also be available to answer any medicines related queries by telephone.
