We’re booking appointments as normal and can carry out all the usual range of treatments. However, we’re currently very busy so please understand if there’s a wait before we can see you.

Please don’t visit in person to book your appointments. Visit the appointments page here

If anything isn’t clear or if you have any questions, please get in touch.

Please only keep your appointment if you feel happy to attend, and you can answer NO to all the questions:

  1. Do you have any of the following symptoms: a high temperature, a new continuous cough or a loss of, or change to, your sense of taste or smell?
  2. Have you tested positive for covid-19 in the last 10 days?
  3. Has anyone in your household or support bubble tested positive for covid-19 in the last 10 days, or have they any of the following symptoms: a high temperature, a new continuous cough or a loss of, or change to, their sense of taste or smell?
  4. If you have been notified by NHS Test and Trace to self-isolate, are you still in the self-isolation period?
  5. If you have entered or returned to the UK within the last 10 days, are you in the self-isolation period?

If you answer ‘Yes’ to any of these questions, please let us know and postpone your appointment as soon as possible.

Before your appointment:

  • Please complete the pre-appointment checks using the link in your text message reminder
  • If any of your answers to the above questions change to ‘Yes’ before your appointment, you should stay at home and not attend. Please let us know if this is the case.
  • Please bring the minimum number of items with you.
  • Please attend alone if possible. If somebody needs to accompany you (e.g. child under 16y), please have only 1 person with you.

Face masks

If you can do so, please wear a face mask when you attend. 


If you are happy to pay remotely before your appointment, this would help to minimise contact in the practice. This can be done by card over the phone, or by bank transfer.
If you would like to pay by bank transfer, please get in touch for our account details

If you prefer to pay when you visit, you can still do this.
