PATIENT NOTICE

You may or may not be aware that there is a shortage of GP's and obtaining cover is extremely difficult.

We are experiencing difficulties getting cover and for this reason we ask that you be patient and understanding if we cannot offer you an appointment straight away. If you have an urgent medical issue that needs to be assessed, we will attempt to see you as soon as possible but 'Routine' issues will have to wait for the next available appointment. Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

Please do not telephone whilst the surgery is running as this would engage our lines and may prevent patients who need urgent medical attention getting through.
