Getting to Estuary View Medical Centre

The Trust, like the rest of the NHS, has preparations in place to ensure essential services for patients can continue to be available if local traffic routes are disrupted, in the same way it prepares for other potential disruptions, from heavy snowfall to flooding. If you have an appointment, please still plan to attend. If we need to reschedule your appointment we will contact you. 

Please allow plenty of time for your journey, and ensure you are well-prepared for potential disruption to your journey. Please check the latest travel updates before you set off.
