In an attempt to protect both patients and our front line healthcare staff, we are actively discouraging patients to attend the practice sites for routine enquiries.   Please ring us in the first instance.  If you are requesting a face to face appointment you should expect to be offered a clinician telephone triage first.   

IF YOU HAVE ORDERED A REPEAT PRESCRIPTION YOU MAY EXPERIENCE A SHORT DELAY IN THE PROCESSING TIME DUE TO THE VOLUME OF WORK.   WE ARE DOING OUR BEST IN VERY DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES AND WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR UNDERSTANDING AT THIS TIME.    PLEASE DO NOT ORDER YOUR MEDICATION EARLIER THAN NECESSARY.   

During this time all non urgent paperwork and requests, such as insurance reports and non-medical type letters received from patients will take longer to process.  

THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED UNDERSTANDING
