Welcome to SUNNY MEED Surgery

Phone consultations as well as face to face consultations and can be booked on-line.
Care navigation to: members of our clinical team, other local health providers (including voluntary organisations) and online medical resources is available if needed.
We offer a wide range of clinics and services and are here to provide the best care we can for you and your family.
We are sorry to inform you that Dr Michael Bourke will be retiring at the end of May.
He has worked as a GP at Sunny Meed for over 30 years and many patients still remember his father Dr J.J. Bourke who first set up the practice in 1952.
Dr Paul Rankin will be taking over as Senior Partner and Registered Manager for CQC and Dr Dhru Patel will be joining the partnership, having worked at the surgery over the past 3 years. He will take over lead roles in both palliative care and safeguarding.

'Did Not Attend' Policy Update
Due to an increasing number of appointments being wasted by last minute cancellations, we have had to adapt our DNA policy. If an appointment is not cancelled at least 1 hour before the time it is due, it will still count as a DNA.
Appointments cancelled at least 1 hour before due time can generally be re-used and as such make best use of the clinicians’ time.
If you do not attend for 3 or more appointments within a 12 month period you will be considered for removal from the practice list.
