Proxy access will no longer be available at this practice from 9th March 2016 and we are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
TELEPHONING THE PRACTICE
As of Mid September 2015 we are removing some of the options when you telephone the surgery. To make it easier we only have 2 options.
Option1- Reception only who will deal with your call or pass you to the most appropriate person
Option 2- Queries- only available between 10.30am and 1.30pm Monday to Friday for all test results and queries you may have.
We hope this makes life easier when trying to contact the surgery- But advise you that between 8.30am and 10am it is alot busier and may take longer to process your call. Thank you
