The reception desk and administrative office as we know it at present will close and the temporary waiting area will open in the converted office space.


January 14 PM – 19, 2021

The surgery car parking at King Street will be closed due to renovation at the site. The surgery will be open as normal.

It is possible that any of these dates above may change slightly due to the implications of COVID-19 and any changes in national guidance.

We do not expect any of the above plans to impact the way our services are delivered, but if you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact us via email where possible to avoid creating queues on the telephone lines at this busy time.
