Message from our Doctors

We wish to let all our patients know that over this difficult time it is still very important to look after your general health. It is important that you still consult with your doctor as you normally would with regard to your general medical problems and concerns.

If you have concerns about making an appointment to see your doctor, then making an appointment for a Telehealth consultation may be an option for you in the first instance. You can then have an ‘over the phone’ consultation which may address all your needs. Your doctor can let you know if it would be best to come in to be seen in the clinic.

We are in this together and the health of our patients and staff are paramount at this time.

If you do have concerns, please contact us and one of our reception or nursing staff can answer your questions.

We are a practice for the whole community

Our team includes experienced general practitioners, specialised practice nurses and other health professionals dedicated to meet your health care needs.
