Please note our email address is only to be used for prearranged communication.
**PLEASE DO NOT TURN UP AT THE SURGERY WITHOUT AN APPOINTMENT**
The Practice is currently restricting access for the safety of all patients and staff temporarily. Patients should not come to the practice, but should telephone us first. Staff will take details and signpost you to the correct person. It is important you tell the receptionist the reason for your call. A member of the clinical team will phone you back. Please remember our number will come up “withheld”/”private”. They may be able to deal with the problem over the phone or they might arrange a video consultation or arrange for you to be seen at the Practice.
All patients will still have access to the care they require.
We appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.
Please phone 01463 235245 if you feel you require medical advice and we will call you back.
