Dr Paul Deffley
We would like to let you know that from 1st April 2019, Dr Deffley will be changing his working days and will no longer be working at Trinity Medical Centre on a Thursday. Dr Deffley will continue to see patients on a Monday but he will no longer hold an allocated patient list.
Dr Deffley will be supporting NHS England and the Royal College of General Practitioners in national work to help General Practice change the way it works, and help new roles such as pharmacists deliver patient facing services.
We are really pleased that our established salaried doctors will be covering Thursday clinics and Dr Deffley’s patients will be allocated between the other doctors in the practice.
If Dr Deffley is your named GP, we will update you with more details in due course.

Important information for ladies aged 68-71 not receiving invitations for breast cancer screening (as seen on the news)
All women affected will now be contacted by letter by the end of May and those under 72 will receive an appointment for a catch-up mammogram.
Women aged over 72 can contact a helpline to talk through the pros and cons of having breast screening – scans in older women sometimes pick up cancers which do not require treatment.
What to do if you’re affected?
- Call the breast screening helpline number 0800 169 2692
- Go the NHS Choices website for more information
- You should receive a letter by the end of May
