Although the surgery is open and managing as many, or more, patients as ever, we are still trying trying to limit footfall in the surgery to only those who have an appointment.
Please try not attend the surgery if you do not have an appointment - phone or use eConsult.
All prescriptions will be sent to your nominated chemist. Do not come to collect them from the surgery. Sick lines will be posted or emailed to you.
