There are car parking facilities at the rear of the building. Please do not block the entrance to the car park.
Please be aware that if you request that prescriptions are sent to you via Royal Mail that you supply a sufficiently large enough envelope with the correct postage. If the postage stamp and envelope do not comply with the Royal Mail guidelines then they will not be posted by the surgery and will need to be collected by yourself or your representative. When a number of prescriptions are requested and a small envelope is provided the prescriptions are inserted into the envelope which then becomes too fat to comply with regulations. We do not want the Royal Mail opening your envelopes so that they can return to sender. Please give consideration to this when requesting prescriptions are posted to you.
