Noticeboard

Due to the CVID-19- please DO NOT attend the surgery to book appointments. Please ring the reception to arrange a telephone triage appointment. If the GP wishes to see you then they will arrange a face to face appointment for you.

We are now seeing patients in nurse/ HCA clinics at both Norman Road and Victoria HC (Purple sites).   You will be given an appointment time, and we ask that you do not attend earlier as you will not be allowed inside the building until the nurse/ HCA calls you in. Can you please ensure that you are wearing a mask or mouth covering when attending the surgery. If you have any signs of symptoms for Covid-19 do not attend the surgery.  

Repeat prescriptions will be sent direct to your pharmacy.  We thank you for your co-operation. Please register to order your prescriptions on-line if you have not already registered.
