Surgery appointments - Vacation time


Our sites are currently closed to patients due to COVID-19 so please do not attend in person. All appointments (for registered patients) will be telephone consultations. Please call +44 (0)1707 284444 and you will be transferred to a receptionist to book a telephone consultation. Alternatively, you can complete an e-consultation here.

***Please note that in the core holiday weeks the Medical Centre is only open in the mornings from 09:00 and 12.30***

If need arises unexpectedly, arrangements can be made to see you at our other surgery, Potterells Medical Centre, after this time.
