IMPORTANT PATIENT INFORMATION

Sadly due to family reasons Dr Gupta is longer at the practice.

During this period patients who are registered with Dr Gupta will be able to book routine appointments with any of the other Doctors or one of our new Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs) who are available every morning and afternoon for acute urgent matters.

You will be able to book an appointment with an alternative clinician either by telephone, online or by visiting the surgery.

Please request your repeat prescriptions directly at the pharmacy of your choice, online or at the surgery in the conventional manner.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.


Shingles Vaccination 2018-19

Following last year's campaign, the practice will once again be immunising eligible patients against shingles. The shingles vaccine will be given as a single injection and you will only need to have the vaccination once.

We will be sending appointments to all of those eligible for the vaccination to attend clinics from October 2018.

These appointments are longer than for routine Flu vaccination but the Shingles vaccination can be given at the same time as your Flu vaccination.
