Shielding - Protecting those who are most vulnerable. The Government are writing directly to people this week (23rd March) whom they deem to be "vulnerable" depending on their medical background. The letter will advise these individuals to self isolate, in order to protect themselves and the population. Those affected will receive a letter in the post. Please refrain from contacting the surgery about this as we have no further information at this stage. We are working hard to continue to ensure the safety of our patients and thank you for your understanding at this time. More info here.
Please do not come to the surgery if you do not have an appointment.
This is in the interest of patient safety with the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. We are now operating a full triage service before you are able to enter the building.
