IMPORTANT MESSAGE RE: CORONAVIRUS

We have put the following measures in place in order to help limit the spread of COVID-19 and provide a safer environment for patients and staff.

3    Appointments must be requested by telephone or via the online triage tool (DoctorLink).  Please do not come to the surgery in person to book an appointment.  We are aiming to provide additional telephone support.

5    If you are asked to come to the surgery for an appointment please wait in your car until your appointment time.  This is to limit the number of people in the waiting room at any one time.

A nurse will then contact you by post to confirm your vaccination requirements.

All routine childhood vaccinations are available at the surgery by appointment with the practice nurse. It is important to ensure that all children are vaccinated against the potentially serious illnesses and all those behind with their programme should catch up as soon as possible.
