TELEPHONING THE PRACTICE

To make it easier when you telephone us we only have 2 options.

Option1- Reception only who will deal with your call or pass you to the most appropriate person

Option 2- Queries- only available between 10.30am and 1.30pm Monday to Friday for all test results and queries you may have.

We hope this makes life easier when trying to contact the surgery- But advise you that between 8.30am and 10am it is a lot busier and may take longer to process your call.  Thank you
