DO NOT TURN UP UNANNOUNCED AT THE SURGERY

It is essential for the prevention of spread of the virus.

THE MINISTRY OF HEALTH HAS ADVISED THAT THE MOST GENERAL PRACTICE PATIENTS SHOULD BE HELPED BY PHONE CONSULTATION INSTEAD OF FACE TO FACE. THIS IS TO AVOID THE SPREAD OF THE CORONAVIRUS TO PATIENTS WHILE AT THE HEALTH CENTRE. NORMAL CONSULT FEES WILL STILL APPLY TO PHONE CONSULTS – IF THE DOCTOR BELIEVES YOU SHOULD COME IN THEN THEY WILL ARRANGE THIS.

We are still here for you

As an essential service we are still open for our patients. We hope you are keeping well in your ‘bubble’. If you have any health concerns we are here to help and are open normal hours for phone, video, and if needed, face-to-face consultations. Your wellbeing is important to us so please do not hesitate to get in touch for anything you would normally see a nurse or GP for.
