Further down the page are the Branch Details. In the Address box, you can edit the address by adding each line of the address, then adding <br>. This is very important, as your address will not display correctly if you do not do this. Note: this is the only place on the whole website that you need to use code. If you are stuck, don't hesitate to drop us an email at support@gpsurgery.net for a helping hand.

You can also edit the phone number in the Phone number box. Note: please make sure that you only add a number here, no comments, otherwise the number will display incorrectly.

Further down the page, you will come to seven separate hours boxes for the seven days of the week. These should be edited individually, and your hours written in full into each box. Note: you do have the option to fill in the Description box for each day's hours, but if you do this please be aware that it will display in full in the Branch widget, which may make it difficult to read.

Another option you have is to add an image of the branch. You can do this by clicking the Set featured image link in the Featured image box on the right-hand side of the page.

Choose an image from the media library, or drag and drop an image onto the page to upload it. Note: ensure that the photo you choose is high quality, and ideally taken on a bright day. This will make it look good on the website, but more importantly will make it recognisable to your patients.
