From Monday 8th June we are opening the surgery main door at Edlesborough for prescription collection and pre booked appointments only  

To book appointments and for queries we ask you to phone us.

Please do not come to the surgery unless you have medication to collect or have a pre booked appointment.

We have marked out a one way system within the practice at both sites with tape to mark 2 metres. I think we are by now all used to spacing – please please be prepared to wait outside if the maximum number of patients are in the practice

If you are unwell with a fever, cough or loss of taste/ smell please call 111- under no circumstances should you come to the practice. For the protection of staff and other patients, patients with these symptoms are being assessed at a central hub.

Thank you for helping us to keep the footfall in the surgery to a minimum so that we can offer you the best possible service whilst observing good social distancing.
