Severe Weather Advice

Severe Weather Advice
With very low temperatures and snow forecast for Wiltshire over the next few days we are asking patients to be aware of their own safety and only to attend appointments at the surgery as planned if it is safe for them to travel.
As some of our medical team live away from the immediate vicinity of the surgery it may mean that some appointments will be with an alternative Practitioner, we will endeavour to cancel as few and will update our social media channels and traditional local media channels should this change.
In addition we will keep you fully informed of any changes to our plans and we would ask that you share this and future messages with patients.
