Welcome to Park & Thorntree Surgeries Online
Middlesbrough Council advice for ALL click on the link :
Please dispose of masks and other waste properly.
Bins are outside the building to dispose of masks or better still wear them to home and dispose there. Our guys have enough to do without picking up discarded masks.
Please be diligent.
Entry : Appointment only with face covering
If you have a pre-booked appointment then as from Monday 15th June please remember without a face covering Security staff will be required to turn you away. There is still no open access to the surgery as we still need to manage the number of patients in at any one time so by appointment only with a face covering.
Your help and support in keeping patients and staff safe at this time is very much recognised and appreciated.
