• TARGET Training Afternoons 2020

    Once a month the surgery closes on a Wednesday afternoon for training (except during August and December). These training afternoons were cancelled during April, May and June so as not to put additional pressure on 111 services whilst practices were closed and the 111 services were already extremely busy due to COVID-19. We are pleased to say that our TARGET training dates will resume from July 2020 and the practice will close on the following Wednesday afternoons from 12 o’clock; 15th July 16th September 14th October 11th November

  • Important Information on Ranitidine Medication

    “EMA’s human medicines committee (CHMP) has recommended the suspension of all ranitidine medicines in the EU due to the presence of low levels of an impurity called N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). NDMA is classified as a probable human carcinogen (a substance that could cause cancer) based on animal studies.

You may not need Ranitidine if symptoms are controlled with over the counter indigestion remedies such as Gaviscon. If you think your symptoms are not controlled, please contact Trinity Medical Centre”.
