IMPORTANT NOTICE TO PATIENTS
Due to having two doctors off with covid this week we will still be seeing any pre-booked patients today during the surgery closure time. If you have an appointment today, please do still attend.
Do not contact your practice about the COVID-19 vaccine. You will be contacted directly by the NHS. You can also book your vaccine (including boosters) on the NHS website.
If you have COVID-19 symptoms, you must get a PCR test before visiting your surgery (different to a lateral flow test, for patients with no symptoms). To find out how to book your vaccine or PCR test, go to www.gov.uk/coronavirus or call 119
Before contacting your GP practice, please consider using NHS 111 online to check your symptoms
