Gradual Reopening of Sites - from Monday 6th July 2020, Langabhat Medical Practice began to partially reopen at all sites. This will mean sites that have been closed to the public since March are now open on selected days offering a small number of clinics for patients who need to be seen face to face. The sites are open at a reduced level compared to the previous opening times in order to ensure patient and staff safety during the current pandemic outbreak.

Updated Site Opening Times – opening & closing times as from 6th July 2020, can be found within the link above and using the drop down menu at the top of this page.
Reminder - please be patient with our staff. They are dealing with a tremendous amount of work at present and are working above and beyond their normal hours in order to cover the demand for our services. They are also dealing with regular changes to advice from National bodies so can we reiterate that the best place to go for information in the first instance is NHS Inform as it is the most up-to-date source.
