New Patient Registrations
Both Practices based at Hermitage Medical Practices have reached a level of which
they are at full capacity for new patient registrations.
They are unable to take on any new registrations until more space becomes available.
This is to ensure we are able to practice efficiently & safely.
We are monitoring this regularly and would hope this situation will be short term.
Our Practices are assisting in the training and teaching of final year medical students
and you may therefore be asked if you mind a student being present during your consultation.
You will always be asked for permission before any such consultation and if you prefer,
they will not be present.
Most of our local pharmacies provide a prescription pick up service. If you feel
you would benefit from this service, please inform one of the reception staff.
