Update 13 March 2020:
We are reviewing our procedures in light of the rapidly evolving Coronavirus situation so that we can appropriately respond to demand.
It is necessary to reduce the footfall into the practice in order to reduce the risk to our patients and staff.
From 16th March 2020 until the Coronavirus crisis resolves, we will have no pre-bookable appointments and we will be reducing some services.
There will be no routine appointments available .
If you need to make an appointment, please telephone reception and be prepared to provide some basic information to allow your call to be triaged.
Please do not come to the surgery for anything other than a pre-arranged appointment.
All scripts will be sent to your designated chemists.
Thank you for your support during these difficult times.
