Due to the concerns regarding the spread of the Corona Virus, the practice has taken the unprecedented step to change all of our routine face to face appointments to telephone or eConsult. No appointment bookings or queries will be taken at the desk, please telephone or use eConsult for us to appropriately deal with your request and allow us to keep our patients and staff safe. For repeat prescriptions we strongly advise you use one of the online apps, if you have not already signed up for this please do so as soon as possible. Click here Online Services to sign up. We may need you to email us a form of Photo ID to enable us to assign you full access. AT THIS BUSY TIME IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE KEEP THE TELEPHONE LINES FREE FOR URGENT ENQUIRIES. PLEASE REFRAIN FROM BLOCKING THE TELEPHONE LINES WITH MATTERS THAT CAN BE DEALT WITH AT A LATER DATE.
We thank you for your cooperation at this challenging time.
Kind Regards, Paxton Medical Group.
