TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF ROUTINE APPOINTMENTS
In order to deal with the increased cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Practice needs to be able to deal with increased patient contacts. We have, therefore suspended all routine and non-urgent appointments for the time being. If you already have a pre-booked appointment, you may be contacted to ask whether you would be willing to have a phone consultation. You should keep your appointment unless advised otherwise.
We will be assessing the situation on a day-to-day basis and if you require medical advice, you should contact Reception by telephone and your call will be directed appropriately. PLEASE DO NOT COME INTO THE SURGERY.
Please be assured that the Practice is still open and should you require medical advice you can speak on the phone to a Doctor and if they feel you need to be seen face to face the doctor will arrange a suitable time for you.
Thank you for your understanding and support at this difficult time.
