Easter 2014

The surgery will be closed on the following dates over Easter:

Good Friday (18th)

Easter Monday (21st)

There will be no Saturday morning clinic on the 19th April so we will be open again as usual on 22nd April from 08:30.

Simple steps such as having a well-stocked medicine cabinet at home can help with minor illnesses and injuries, and with us being closed Good Friday and Easter Monday we want to remind patients to ensure their repeat prescriptions are ordered in advance.

For immediate, life-threatening emergencies such as stroke, blacking out or severe blood loss, patients should dial 999 or got to their local A&E department.

For other illnesses and injuries there are a range of services available. Pharmacists can help with many minor ailments such as colds, flu, headaches, sore throats, ear aches, emergency contraception, skin problems and more.
