Noticeboard

 Computers offline Tuesday 22nd - Wednesday 23rd June

Our computer systems are being replaced and upgraded on Tuesday and Wednesday 22nd and 23rd June.  This is essential as the computers we are using are unreliable and slow.  We will have little or no access to medical records on these days and we will have fewer clinical staff on site due to social distancing rules.

As a result, we will only be able to deal with medical emergencies.  We will not be able to issue acute or repeat prescriptions on those days, so please consider ordering early if you think you will run out.

We have been very busy recently, and we understand that this is a further frustation.  We thank you for your patience.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

PLEASE DO NOT ENTER THE SURGERY TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT OR TO ORDER YOUR REPEAT PRESCRIPTION.  PLEASE GO HOME AND TELEPHONE RECEPTION.
