If you have an appointment: 

  • Social distancing rules must be observed so we ask all patients to WAIT IN THE CAR until your appointment, rather than in the waiting room. You may wait in the waiting room if you did not come by car. WEAR A MASK IF POSSIBLE.
  • Due to the limited seating in our waiting area, we kindly ask that only the person with the appointment (plus a parent if under 16yrs old) come in, or with a support person if needed.

To notify us that you are here for your appointment you can either:

  • Come in to the practice and speak to the reception before going back to your car
  • Or give us a call on (03) 3725190 to let us know you have arrived

Thank you for your cooperation. Stay safe 😊
