Latest News and Information
We are very excited to share with you we are finally renovating our reception area and re carpeting the whole practice. This project has been in the planning for the past few years.
We will be commencing on the 18th November and intending to be completed by the 7th December. To manage this renovation it will require some disruptions to how we operate; a temporary front desk, a smaller waiting area and unfortunately some noise. Our aim is to keep the disruptions to a minimum as most of the major work will be occurring after 5pm.
So with this in mind our opening hours from the 16th November until 26th January 2021 will be 8-5pm Monday – Friday.
Apologies in advance for any inconvenience – but the end result will be worth it!

We are now sending all our scripts electronically to a pharmacy of your choice. When requesting a repeat script it is very important to supply us with the name of the pharmacy you wish us to send your script. If you don’t provide us with a pharmacy we will be sending the script by default to Mana Pharmacy. This new process should assist us all in improving the script request service to you.
