UPDATE: IMPORTANT NOTICE TO PATIENTS: CORONAVIRUS

For your protection the practice intends to move to a telephone triage system beginning 16th March for all requests for appointments. Please call as normal for an appointment and then an appropriate clinician will call you back. If deemed safe and necessary you will be invited in for a face to face consultation later in the day.
