Latest News & Updates
Update on flu vaccines: We received an initial small shipment of flu vaccines this week and started to give them to our most vulnerable patients. Unfortunately we did not receive any further shipments (normally small shipments arrive daily). The suppliers advise that more will be released 'early to mid April'. We will let you know as soon as we have our flu clinics open.
PRESCRIPTIONS: There is no need to order medicines ahead of time or stock up, as we and the pharmacies will be open normal hours during the level 4 lockdown. You can order anytime - but only when you need to, please.
To keep our vulnerable patients and our staff as safe as possible, physical access to our practice is now restricted. ALL patients are asked to PHONE AHEAD with your requests or queries. Don't worry, you will get an appointment if a face to face visit is required, but our GP will need to speak to you first. Ph us on 8720300.
