Welcome to The Surgery @ Aylestone
Our aim is to provide a modern caring General Practice service with traditional values.
General Practice has been escalated to the highest level of response to the pandemic and we have been advised to undertake essential work only. We are asking for your support and to only contact us for problems that will not wait until the current crisis begins to ease. Some of our staff have been redeployed to other parts of the NHS so we apologise if the phones are not responded to our usual level of efficiency. We are contacting patients eligible for vaccination as appointments become available. We will prioritise medication requests although review dates may be postponed.
On behalf of the practice we thank you for your understanding during this challenging time and we will continue to be there for our patients.
