Due to the spike in covid-19 cases our practice is running under contingency measures and this may increase waiting times.
Urgent cases will continue to be prioritised.
Please be patient whilst trying to contact us on the telephone due to low levels of staffing available. Our remaining staff are working hard to help you and we ask that you are considerate during this time.
If possible, we would ask that you consider using the e-consult option on our website, to reduce the phone traffic. This would enable patients who are less able to use the internet to contact us on the telephone.
Please also be aware that we may need to cancel appointments at short notice should our clinicians need to quarantine under covid measures.
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE PRACTICE FOR ANY REASON WITHOUT AN APPOINTMENT. THIS MEANS THAT YOU SHOULD NOT ATTEND IN PERSON WITH QUERIES OR TO REQUEST APPOINTMENTS. THIS IS TO PREVENT NUMBERS OF PATIENTS COMING IN TO CONTACT WITH EACH OTHER, AND HELP REDUCE THE SPREAD OF COVID.
PLEASE WEAR A MASK WHEN ATTENDING OUR PRACTICE IN ORDER TO PROTECT VERY VULNERABLE PATIENTS.
24/7 access to the practice via e-Consultation
