If you are planning to come to an Advanced Practice please email the or ring on 07771466123 first to let us know you are coming and which methods you would like to ring. This enables us to have an idea of numbers and you to find out if the practice is on and what we are likely to be ringing.
Very occasionally, if the number coming is very low, the practice may be cancelled to save people having wasted journeys. This will be done by contacting all those who have let us know they are coming.
