New System 

 

The surgery is adopting a new system from Monday 19/4/21 which will allow the surgery to contact patients via their mobile phone. We will only be able to do this, if you have consented to receive sms messages. Patients can even respond to these messages. The aim of this is to support new ways of working and help reduce the number of telephone calls.

 Urgent Message

Main telephone line

Please note that we are currently experiencing an extremely high number of telephone calls during this time. We are aware that there is a fault on our line -01507 603121. This is being dealt with as a matter of urgency by BT. this means that your call may drop out of the the system intermittently.

We can only apologise for this inconvenience and please be reassured that we are doing our best to resolve the issue.

 

All phone calls are diverted to the Newmarket Branch after 5pm

 

PATIENT UPDATE

The Practice is no longer booking routine appointments at this time.  We will be contacting as many patients as possible that are already booked to be seen and will be conducting a telephone appointment.

Urgent appointments will be assessed on an individual basis – please contact reception via telephone if you are requiring an urgent appointment

  

If you are coming into the surgery because you have been given an appointment, we ask that you wear a face covering, use hand sanitiser and keep the 2 metre distance. Thank you.
