Welcome to Epping Close Surgery
New Staff - We are very pleased to welcome Alison Jones to the nursing team from the 14th February 2017. Alison is an experience nurse practitioner and will be running a minor illness clinic at Epping Close on Wednesdays. She is able to see and treat a wide range of ailments - please ask at reception for details. All her appointments will be bookable on the day.
She is also able to see patients with a chronic disease for their annual reviews, ie asthma, diabetes. These will be bookable in advance and you just need to ask at Reception.
Pharmacy2u - The surgery and ACE are aware that many of our patients have received a promotional letter from Pharmacy2u. Whilst it is patient choice, we would like to make you aware that Pharmacy2u are based in Leeds and they send all your repeat medication via Royal Mail. It has also been known that a patient's medication has been delivered to a neighbour. They have also stated on their promotional letter that Epping Close along with other local surgeries are affiliated with Pharmacy2u which is incorrect.
