The updated message states: "Thank-you for calling calling New Pond Row Surgery today.


"Unfortunately, we have had to close the surgery for this afternoon as a precautionary measure.

"If you need any medical advice, please contact NHS 111 and they will support and signpost you where needed.

"We should hopefully be open tomorrow morning at 8am."
