Noticeboard

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we have decided to temporarily suspend the online appointment system. The facility to order prescriptions online has not been affected. The sit and wait blood clinic has also been suspended and will operate on a pre booked appointment basis. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience during this difficult time.
