IMPORTANT – CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 

 

Following advice from NHS England and Public Health England, we have taken the decision to temporarily change our appointment booking system. 

 

If you suspect that you may have coronavirus, have a temperature or develop a cough DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY 

 

We have suspended future appointment bookings to ensure that we are prepared. 

 

Please be assured that a face-to-face appointment will be made for you if you do need to be seen. 

 

Please remember: 

This decision is to protect our most vulnerable patients. 

We do not have any way for testing for the virus at the surgery. 

Should someone with the virus attend then we would have to close the entire surgery. 

 

If you would like more information regarding Corona Virus (Covid-19) please visit the NHS 111 Page
