Noticeboard

9/10/2019 - 18/10/2019

We are short of appointments for the next two weeks and can only offer appointments for acute conditions.  If you have an issue which is routine or you are looking for a follow up appointment you may be asked to contact us later in the month.  There will also be days when we are only able to see medical emergencies, please work with us to ensure any patients who need to be seen are able to do so.  The lines are very busy at 8am and we ask that you only phone between 8am and 9am if you have a medical emergency which needs to be seen that day.  We may be able to offer an appointment with another HCP (health care professional) who can assist you so please do not be offended if a receptionist asks for some details of your illness.
