Coronavirus Information

Due to the global coronavirus pandemic we are triaging all appointments before our patients are seen.

If you are asked to attend the surgery by a member of staff we kindly request that you wear a mask.

In the event you attend a testing centre for the symptoms of coronavirus please ensure you inform the practice of your result.
