Uppingham Surgery Waiting Room

The Surgery has reinstated the waiting room. For appointments enter the building through the main front doors and book in at the reception desk. The waiting area is sign posted just along the ground floor corridor to the left. Wait here for the doctor or nurse to come and call you in for your appointment. 

The blood pressure machine and weighing scales for patient use are located behind a screen in a corner of the waiting room.

Please tell friends and neighbours who do not have the village email about this.
