Update 29.11.21

Dear Patients, 

Due to unprecedented staff shortages, we are extremely busy at the moment and you may therefore have to wait longer than we would like for routine consultations. 

Please bear with us during busy times and help our staff by considering other options on offer such as the Community Pharmacy consultation Service. 

Please treat our staff with consideration and respect during this difficult time. 

Thank you
