To improve our network speeds and ability to offer service to our patients, our practice will have a reboot of our IT systems.
This will impact our service ability on Wednesday February 1st from 10.30-11.30am and 12.45-2pm.
AS WE HAVE 2 SITES SOME OF OUR PHONE LINES WILL REMAIN OPERATIONAL, BUT WILL BE SIGNIFICANTLY IMPACTED BY THIS REBOOT DURING THE TIMES STATED.
PLEASE AVOID PHONING DURING THOSE TIMES IF YOU CAN.
We thank you for your tolerance during this time as routine and urgent services may be impacted for a short period.

Awaiting a Hospital appointment or wanting a result?
Please do not ring the surgery if you are under the hospital already to chase a result or a hospital appointment. If you have not heard from the hospital about a planned appointment or feel you may need to amend or request your appointment is brought forward please contact the hospital directly. You can contact the main hospital switchboard and ask to speak to your consultants secretary. The practice has no other way of doing this other than the above and you will be directed to do this.
Joint Injection Service
We are pleased to confirm that this service is now fully operational again as we (hopefully) move away from the pandemic. Please contact the surgery if you feel you need a joint injection.
Sick Notes Extensions
If you require an extension to a sick note please order this via the NHS App where possible.
