Keeping COVID safe within our buildings June 2022

As a surgery  both patients and clinicians  have had to adapt their working on a day to day basis to help protect both patients and staff. We thank all our patients and colleagues for their cooperation in such challenging times. It is now patient choice to wear a face mask in the surgery.

We ask that unless you have booked a face to face appointment that you still continue to use our other methods of contact for prescriptions, booking and general enquiries.

Thank you
