Important Patient Information

 

Unfortunately, we have 3 GPs off sick, 2 of which are on long-term sick leave. This has significantly reduced GP cover and as a result the waiting times in the Walk and Wait Clinic are likely to be longer than usual.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience

Thank you for your patience
