NOTICE OF PHONE CLOSURE
You may have noticed that the surgery is currently undergoing a programme of flooring replacement. This is happening over consecutive weekends up to the end of February. On the weekend of Friday 23rd January the main Ilkley Moor administration office will be affected along with 2 or 3 doctors’ rooms. To enable us to minimise the disruption to patients we will be transferring our phones to the out-of-hours service between 4pm on Friday 23rd through to 9am on Monday 26th January. The surgery switchboard will be available as normal from 9am on the 26th January.
Patients who already have appointments booked during this time are not affected, and the reception desk will be functioning as normal for people collecting prescriptions etc.
We apologise for any inconvenience and we thank you in advance for your patience whilst we work to improve the appearance of the surgery.
