Practice Appointment Update
13th March 2020
Please do not attend the surgery to book an appointment. Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, if you need an appointment please ring the surgery and you will be given a telephone appointment with a GP. The GP will contact you to discuss your symptoms and ask you screening questions. They will ask you come to surgery if they need to examine you.
From Monday 16th March we will be moving all our essential nurse and GP appointments to our Lofthouse Site. The Manse Site will be closed to patients until further notice.
During the coronavirus outbreak if you need to request a prescription, you can use our online service, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or post a request through our letter boses - please ensure you have nominated a pharmacy where you want to collect your medication from - or alternatvely call reception for advice.
We are sorry for any inconvenience during this time.
