Tabernacle Street Surgery is a medical training practice so, you may come into contact with registered doctors who already have hospital training and medical students who are still training.

Tabernacle Street Surgery was established in July 1982. The premises are made up of a block of houses which has been converted into a general practice.

Off-road parking is available at the front of the surgery, providing about eight parking spaces for staff, patients and visitors. There is also on-road parking towards the end of Tabernacle Street. There is suitable access to the surgery for wheelchair users and there is a disabled toilet in the foyer.

The reception staff are helpful but there is not much privacy at the reception desk. However, there is a poster near to the reception desk to tell patients there is a room available if anyone wants to speak with a receptionist in private.

The waiting room is small with about 12 seats. It is light and pleasantly decorated with several paintings of the local countryside. A local artist has drawn and framed a picture (which is for sale) in aid of the Noah's Ark appeal.

There is a good range of health and support-service information displayed in the waiting room, including repeat prescriptions and complaints procedures, health leaflets and various booklets. There are several noticeboards displaying information on support groups, helplines and emergency numbers. There are magazines available and a box containing a range of childrens' toys and books.

The Practice runs an appointment system. Routine appointments are made at the first available time within 24 hours. Urgent cases will be seen on the same day.
