Welcome to Epping Close Surgery
Welcome to Epping Close Pharmacy2u - The surgery and ACE are aware that many of our patients have received a promotional letter from Pharmacy2u. Whilst it is patient choice, we would like to make you aware that Pharmacy2u are based in Leeds and they send all your repeat medication via Royal Mail. It has also been known that a patient's medication has been delivered to a neighbour. They have also stated on their promotional letter that Epping Close along with other local surgeries are affiliated with Pharmacy2u which is incorrect.
Dementia Support Clinic
The surgery is providing a new service, working in partnership with the local Alzheimer’s Society to support anyone affected by dementia in the Tendring area.
The Alzheimer’s Society has dedicated trained staff to offer support, raise awareness, hold dementia friends sessions and hold regular clinics for patients, carers and family.
If you would like to book into one of the clinics provided in the surgery, please call the usual surgery number above and ask for an appointment in the Dementia clinic. The clinic will be held at Epping Close surgery, Kennedy Way, Clacton on Sea, CO15 4AB on the following dates:
16th March, 18th May.
