Planning your visit to the Practice ahead of time could enable you to car-share, or you may wish to combine your visit with a trip elsewhere, to save both time and fuel.
All of our staff are encouraged to car-share with colleagues where possible. This helps reduce the negative impact of car pollution on the environment and helps keep parking spaces free for patients who may not be able to travel by alternative means.
