Adelaide Street Family Practice

The practice will be closed on Thursday 13 July 2017. A member of the practice team will contact any patients who have a pre-planned appointment for today.

If you are unable to attend Kentmere Drive for an appointment, you will be able to speak to a member of the practice clinical team on the telephone.

Patients are asked for understanding during this period. The practice staff are doing all that they can to minimise disruption for patients today. Please only contact the practice if absolutely necessary.

South King Street Medical Centre

The practice will be closed on Thursday 13 July 2017 and all planned appointments are therefore cancelled. Patients will be contacted in due course to re-arrange cancelled appointments.
