OPEN SURGERY WALK IN CLINIC WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
With effect from Monday 16th March and until further notice there will be no walk in clinic between 8.30am - 10.15am.
We have made this decision to protect our staff and vulnerable patients from potential exposure to the Covid-19 virus.
Please telephone the surgery on 01202 464500 to request a call back. You will be asked to give a brief indication for your call so we can assign you to a healthcare professional other than a GP if required.
The demand for appointments has increased significantly because of Covid-19 and therefore we kindly ask you to think about other avenues other than your GP.
Covid-19 please refer to https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 in relation to any concerns or symptoms you may have. Sorry we cannot test you!
Prescription & medication queries can be dealt with by your pharmacy.

If you have a life threatening medical emergency please dial 999 and ask for an ambulance.
