Friday, 6 December 2019: Phone lines down at Chestnuts Surgery

Due to a technical fault the phone lines at Chestnuts Surgery are not working. Patients calling the Surgery’s telephone number will be diverted to Hallgate Surgery where your call will be dealt with appropriately. Chestnuts Surgery is still open as normal.

Patients can still contact the Surgery using the Electronic Consultation System through the website or the Practice email address. If you have an urgent medical problem or need advice regarding your health please phone 111.

We are pleased to announce that Chestnuts and Hallgate Surgery are coming together!

This will lay the ground work over the next 9 months to prepare us for an extension planned to the King Street Site

For more information please see the patient communications in the PDF below.
