Urgent Notice to patients
Owing to unforeseen circumstances we are going to be two doctors down over the next few months. We have arranged to have two new partners join us in April and we will be arranging as much cover as possible in the form of locums over the interim period. As always we will ensure that all patients with urgent problems are seen but it may be that you will not be able to see the GP you particularly requested.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and ask for your understanding during this difficult time.
We are holding the following clinics, please ring reception to book your appointment.
Saturday 1st October - Old Mill Surgery, Poringland
Saturday 8th October - Old Mill Surgery, Poringland
Saturday 15th October - Village Hall, Hempnall
Unsure if you are eligible for the vaccination? Just ask a receptionist who will advise you.
Our next PPG meeting is on Wednesday 7th December, 7.30pm at Hempnall Surgery
Everyone in the practice now has a named GP. If you are unsure who yours is then please ask at reception, but please remember that you can still see whichever GP you prefer.
NEW PPG REPORT AVAILABLE - See PPG section
