THANK YOU!

NHS Dentistry 

Access to NHS Dentistry is currently limited during the pandemic as all dentists have been asked to stop all routine “face-to-face” dental care.

However, if you need urgent dental care, help is at hand:

CALL your dental practice:

They will give you advice over the telephone and make arrangements for you if you need to be seen.

If you don’t have a dentist, find your nearest dentist and CALL them. You can search for your nearest dentist at: https://www.nhs.uk/service-search/find-a-dentist

Changes to the appointments booking service

Following developments of the Coronavirus pandemic and in the interest of patients and staff safety we have made the difficult decision to suspend the booking of all routine appointments for the time being.

We will be operating a telephone triage system and will be still offering telephone, video consultations and emergency appointments.

There will also be limited access to the practice by keeping the main doors closed. People attending the surgery for an appointment will need to press the intercom for access.

There will be a letter box where you need to put your prescriptions requests. If you normally collect it from the surgery, please use the intercom to advise the receptionist which pharmacy you'd like to collect it from when it's ready. 

These decisions have been made following advice from Public Health England. Thank you for your understanding.

NHS app
We are pleased to say that our surgery is now live on the NHS app. Please follow the simple instruction to set it up.
