    We will be having a change in our GP clinical system in the week beginning 26th April 2018. As a result, any prescriptions requested for in this week will be paper prescriptions and will take 3-5 working days to be issued. NO EPS PRESCRIPTIONS CAN BE SENT DURING THIS WEEK.

    We would therefore suggest that if you manage/request medicsation it is requested in plenty of time before the week beginning 26th April.

    Work will commence on the building by the beginning of April. Please bare with us as we will have to provide the same amount of appointments but with only half a building.

    Taking this into account the surgery may be open 7 days a week so opening hours may feel different.

    For now we will be closing all prebookable appointments from the middle of March until we have got a plan for the appointment system in order to facilitate this. We will still have on the day appointments but prebooked appointments will most likely be weekends and evenings only during this time.

    We will keep you updated but apologise in advance for any inconvenience

    Please take extra care when entering or walking through the patient car park as there is a dip near the entrance. Please avoid walking through the patient car park and walk on the pathway. We are aware this is an issue, however the building works are due to commence shortly and will be used by Heavy Goods Vehicles constantly so will be in worse disrepair and will be fixed in due course after the building work has taken place.
