Dr Lister

Why not start the New Year with the staff and patients of Ladybarn Group Practice in a walk around Ladybarn Park

The next walk is on Thursday 5th April 2018 and then weekly.  Please meet at Ladybarn Group Practice reception at 12.45 p.m.

Walking with us will also be members of BUZZ who can talk about health and wellbeing and services that are available



If patients do not attend their appointments and do not cancel this means others wait longer for appointments.

Please help us to reduce our wasted appointments and cancel so that others patients may use it.
