Noticeboard

Important Update: As of 18/09/2020 our phonelines between 12 and 2pm will be emergency calls only. We ask all medication is ordered online where possible. We are unable to take any medication requests before 10am.

Due to the recent local COVID outbreak we are restricting access to the building to help protect staff and patients. Please only come to the surgery if you have been invited to do so and only at the allocated time. All prescription requests must be done online or over the telephone and will be sent electronically to your nominated pharmacy. Due to the high volume of calls, all COVID related queries will be directed to the government website.

Unfortunately we are unable to offer COVID antibody testing at present
