Central Park Surgery is and always has been open since the COVID-19 crisis. However, we will continue to book on the day appointments only for GP's. Any appointments with the practice nurse / HCA / blood clinic will continue to be pre-booked in advance. This has never changed. Your appointment request will be triaged by the reception team and you will be given the option to speak to a clinician via telephone or face-to-face.
Please be patient as the phone lines can be busy at that time but be assured your call will be answered. Any abusive / aggressive language towards the reception team will not be tolerated and appropriate action will be taken.
