Framwellgate Moor Surgery Re-opening Monday the 19th of February 2018
The second phase of our Framwellgate Moor refurbishment is on schedule for completion and we are reopening on Monday 19th February as planned.
There have been significant improvements since we closed six weeks ago including; automatic doors, patient self check in and patient call systems, new consulting rooms, waiting and reception areas.
However there are some final improvements to undertake in the next and final phase of the building work. Our remaining clinical rooms need to undergo refurbishment to bring them to the same standard as the new rooms. This means that our construction team will still be on site until the end of March.
We anticipate some disruptions to the day to day working at the practice during this time but are confident that they will be kept to a minimum.
Thank you for your on going support.

Improving Communications - TEXT MESSAGING
We are hoping that we can encourage as many patients as possible to provide us with a mobile contact number so that we can extend the range of ways that we can communicate with you.
Initially we are using the service to send out appointment reminders in a bid to reduce the level of patients who fail to attend an appointment and do not ring us to cancel.
