PRACTICE INFORMATION - updates and changes to services    In order to provide flu vaccination programme information on our home page you will now find the updates and changes to practice services in the clinics and services section of our website. 

Update 24 Sept 2020    -  staffing and telephone issues  

Due to unforseen staffing problems we are limiting calls to urgent only.  We apologise for this and hope to return to normal circumstances as soon as possible.   

Unfortunately we are also experiencing ongoing intermittent faults with our telephone system.  We are in contact with our supplier to try to resolve these as quickly as possible.    

We realise how frustrating this will be if you are trying to contact us and appreciate your understanding and co-operation.   Thank you.

PLEASE BE AWARE OF OUR CURRENT WORKING SYSTEM - DETAILS ON HOME PAGE - AS AT 20 AUGUST
