We’ve moved to a new HUB!

We would like to inform all our patients that we are moving HUBS from 1st July 2020.

Our new hub will be located at:

Poplars Surgery

 Appointments at Poplars Surgery must be booked in advance through your own GP practice (Reservoir Road Surgery) and are available with a range of clinicians including GP's, nurses and health care assistants. Please ask a receptionist for further information.


Following NHS guidelines all of our GP appointments are being converted to telephone consultations as of 17/03/2020

If the GP feels that they need to have a face to face consultation with you they will book an appointment to do so.

Prescriptions can be requested online or via email: reservoir.roadsurgery@nhs.net

If you have not yet nominated a pharmacy for your prescriptions to be sent to, you may want to consider doing this now. We will continue to provide updates to our patients via our website.
