PLEASE DO NOT TELEPHONE THE SURGERY REGARDING VACCINATION QUERIES.
Email your query to email@example.com and we will endeavour to contact you within 2 working days. The admin reception team have been taking in excess of 50 phone calls a day regarding vaccination queries and this means 50 patients cannot access the phone lines for necessary healthcare. Please ensure we have your up to date mobile number so we can text links to book your vaccines when we reach your cohort.
