Visual or Hearing Loss

Do you have a visual impairment or suffer from hearing loss or deafness? We can help. We can provide you with letters typed in larger print or on coloured paper. We can provide a hearing loop, to allow you to hear your consultations clearly. Please alert one of our members of staff of your communication needs and we will help you.

There are also some other services who can help you with sensory impairments. This can be anything from practical to emotional support

Welcome to Kirkoswald Surgery website where you will find lots of useful information about your local Practice.


Please take time to browse and see the services that we offer. However, before you do, could we ask that you make a note of a couple of points that would be really appreciated in respect of our Dispensary. Firstly, could we ask that you give us at least 2 full working days notification to allow us to prepare all medications and secondly please note that prescriptions are currently £9.90 per item. The good news is, that for your convenience, we are now able to take card payments. However, if you prefer to pay by cash, it would be really helpful if you could have the correct change available.


Thank you for your cooperation.
