Coronavirus (COVID-19)

In line with current guidelines, all appointments will be carried out over the phone initially, and you will be only be asked to come into the practice if there is a clinical need for you to do so. This will help to minimise risk while continuing to ensure people get the care and advice they need.

Please do not come into the surgery unless you already have an arranged appointment.
