Dear Patient,

From 19th July nothing will change at Bridgeside Surgery.  Patients will still have to wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the surgery. Our staff will continue to wear PPE.

We understand that it can be frustrating but we know that when people come to us they are unwell and vulnerable.  We feel it would be wrong not to take these small precautions to protect our patients and colleagues.

Thank you for your support and patience.

 
 
 
* AT PRESENT, WE ARE NOT TAKING ON ANY NEW REGISTRATIONS
 
We are having a new telephone system installed during the next few weeks.  The installation and change over will complete on 29th July.  There should only be a few minutes down time in the afternoon that day.
