We have all had to learn to live and work differently during the COVID 19 Pandemic. We thank all our patients for their understanding and support during this time. We have had to learn and do the majority of our work over the telephone and using email to help deliver primary medical care to our patients. This has resulted in lengthy waits to get through to us on the telephone and likewise for us to get back to patients. We are continuing to see patients both at the surgery and visit the housebound as needed.
We will continue to re-assess our service and make changes for the better. We welcome feedback but please provide this via post or email.
We are happy to receive requests for prescriptions via our Practice email:
Please see 'quick links' for our latest news letter for more information on the practice.
