Face Masks 

Whilst it is no longer law to wear a face covering, we request where position that you continue to one when you attend the surgery for an appointment. We are committed to protecting both staff and patients as we move out of the Pandemic.  We ask wherever possible you come alone to your appointment and arrive just before your appointment time. Please note that we are currently unable to offer toilet facilities.  Please do not attend the surgery if anyone in your household has received a positive PCR result.
