PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY

We have reduced online booking of appointments and we are now undertaking routine consultations via telephone and will be offering telephone triage appointments for urgent on the day problems.

Due to the high volume of demand please try to use alternative resources where possible. we would recommend the reliable information provided through the NHS Website www.nhs.uk. We would also recommend using your local pharmacy where possible for treating minor conditions.
