We cannot now prescribe: antihistamines and nasal sprays for Hay Fever, Dental products, vitamins and minerals (with some exceptions), cough mixtures, infant colic preparations, heamorrhoid products and antifungal nail paint!

SAME DAY APPOINTMENTS - RING EARLY.

You can ring from 8 am for an urgent same day consultation. As the winter gets busier please ring before 10 am so that we can arrange to see you the same morning. It is much more difficult to fit you in if you ring late in the morning.
