We are pleased to announce that we are now holding a regular hearing aid battery replacement clinic here at the surgery. A volunteer from FOLS will be available on the last Friday of each month 2.15 - 3.15 pm. You must bring along your passbook. We are unable to dispose of your old batteries therefore we must ask you to take these home with you.
In light of the current pandemic if you require hearing aid batteries, please telephone the receptionist who will arrange to leave some batteries at the front door for collection.
Minor Surgical Procedures
We are offering joint injections again. However there are some potential health concerns regarding these injections during the coronavirus pandemic as there is a risk of suppressing the immune system due to the steroid content of the injection. The GP will be able to discuss this if you or they feel you would benefit from this to weigh up the benefits and risks.
Unfortunately we are NOT able to offer Cryotherapy (freezing of warts, verrucas etc) at this time.
