**NEW TELEPHONE SYSTEM**

Please note the phone-in at 12.30-1pm on Wednesdays will STOP from 1st May 2021, to allow us to continue to deliver COVID vaccine clinics

Due to positive COVID cases in the practice team we are operating with significantly reduced staffing levels
and will PROVIDE ESSENTIAL CARE ONLY UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
It is likely to take us longer to answer calls. To allow those with most urgent need to reach us, please consider if your problem can wait.
All appointments will be arranged in advance and ALL requests for GP appointments will be triaged by a doctor, by telephone. Please arrive at your appointment time, wear a face covering and maintain social distancing.
Where possible order repeat prescriptions by e-mail, or on-line via EMIS Access and nominate a pharmacy to collect your prescription for you, after 2 working days.
