Coronavirus (COVID) Vaccine Info & Updates
FACE MASKS ARE MANDATORY
To protect yourself, other patients and our staff, please wear a face mask to any attendance at the surgery. If you are exempt from wearing a mask, please press the buzzer and you will be asked to wait in your car/outside until it is safe to see you.
