Remember to order your prescriptions in plenty of time
We would be obliged if you could avoid telephoning the surgery between 8.30am and 10am unless your request is for an appointment or house visit.
The phone lines are very busy at this time.
If you are looking for results please telephone between 2 and 4 pm as most results do not come in until later in the day.
If, when you have seen the doctor they ask for a follow up appointment in a number of weeks, please could you make the appointment on the way out. This will provide a better chance of getting an appointment to suit your requirements.
Were you aware we have a notice board in the front entrance area at the surgery?
