Additional Information

All parents and patients over the age of 11 are required to wear a face covering on entering the surgery.

On the day we will be using a one way system, you will come in the main doors, please use the hand gel provided and report to reception.  You will be called in to see the nurse and leave (following the directional arrows) by the side door.  Please ensure you are on time for your appointment, but not too early, we have to limit the number of patients in the waiting room.  We also ask that you wear loose fitting clothing so your upper arm is easily exposed.
