Wednesday 21st August 2019
Please note that on Wednesday our internet lines are being upgraded from 12 noon onwards. The work should take around two to three hours however during this time we will have limited access to our clinical system. This will make it difficult for us to process patient queries so if you can please avoid calling us during this time. Appointments will be available as normal.
We hope you enjoy using our NEW Waiting Room
We have also had a brand new floor laid thoughout the public areas and brand new toilets have been fitted. We hope you enjoy the new changes that we have made.
Our musculoskeletal practitioner Jehan has over 20 years’ experience. Why not book an appointment for an assessment today at the surgery instead of seeing the GP. She will give you a thorough assessment as well as expert advice or refer you for further investigations. Please ask at reception to book your appointment.
