CORONAVIRUS GOVERNMENT HEALTH LETTERS
The Practice is here to support you through the current Pandemic that is affecting so many of us. The Government has written to many already medically vulnerable patients who may become unwell if they catch the virus. Please know we are here for you and your families. You will also have seen on the news that many patients are discussing with their GPs their wishes for their care should they become seriously unwell. If you would like to have that discussion or if you think you have an underlying significant condition but have not been included on the Government’s list, then please let us know by email to [email protected]
If you do not have access to email, please telephone the surgery and ask to speak to Miss Nicola Marsh.
