Telephone Appointments
The surgery is getting an increased level of patients requesting telephone appointments. Please make it as easy as possible for the GP’s to get hold of you and keep your mobile/land line telephone to hand. If you do miss the call you will need to phone reception and book another telephone appointment.

Travel Vaccinations
If you are travelling abroad this summer please remember to check if you need any travel vaccinations. You can book an appointment with one of our nurses who will be happy to check for you. If you need a Yellow Fever vaccination this can be done at the surgery but there is a charge for this vaccine.

Patient Parking
Please respect our Disabled Parking bays at the surgery and only use these if you hold a blue badge.
