COPTHORNE SURGERY CLOSURE

Due to staff shortages, we will be closing the Copthorne Branch Surgery as of Monday the 29th of March.  The Partners have not made this decision lightly but we feel that this is the best way that we continue to provide our core services to our patients.  We have moved to a telephone appointment system for the most part and the GPs or other clinicians working will call you back to discuss your medical issues.  We have video consultation capabilities if required and we will see any patients that need a physical examination.

For your safety, please do not come to Practice unless you have a booked appointment.  Our phone lines are every busy so we ask patients to consider why they are calling and can their queries be answered in any other way.  We have created a Frequently Asked Questions document that will answer many of your queries. Please click on the below link.
