Christmas Arrangements

The surgery is open as normal over the Christmas period except for the bank holidays ie Boxing Day  (Monday 26th December), Christmas Holiday in lieu of Christmas Day (Tuesday 27th December) and New Year’s Day holiday (Monday 1st January) when we are closed.  Our normal hours are Monday to Friday open 8.30am to 6.30pm, closed 1 – 2pm.


Please plan ahead if you need regular prescriptions during this time—the dispensary team are working hard to make sure all prescriptions ordered in our monthly system will be ready for collection in good time before the bank holidays.  For those who pick up from village collection points please telephone to order in good time.
