Noticeboard

Please note as of 11th October we are unable to provide travel advice appointments with our nursing team due to staff shortage.

This time of year is very busy with flu vaccination programme as well as the year round demand on our nursing team. Due to staff shortages it was agreed at a practice meeting on 10th October that we will stop offering this service for the month of OCtober and will review ready for November.

Alternatives are available at the Travel Clinics in the area - but there will be a charge.

Sorry for the inconvenience but we need to make sure we can look after our patients through the winter.
