We would ask that you bare with us during this period, we are working hard to ensure that we can delivery the Covid booster to as many of our patients as we can, there may be times when you are asked to wait. You may also be asked to wait longer for routine and non-urgent GP and nurse appointments.

Thank you to the patient who went to the trouble of contacting Care Quality Commission (CQC) to share their feedback. It really does mean a lot and its things like this that make our day.
A little praise when times are tough goes a long way, thankyou!
