September 2017

This month all our careful plans for the refurbishment in both surgeries take off.   Those of you who don’t have appointments planned for  mid September might not be aware that we are running at half-capacity for two weeks , coinciding the building works and chair replacements to a couple of weeks when some members of staff were already on holiday.

We hope this has kept the impact of the diary changes to a minimum and we’ve done our best to ensure that “emergency fix “appointments are still available throughout.  It will feel like the end of an era to say goodbye to the two chairs; our “workhorses” that have been part of the furniture (literally!) for almost 15 years, but the time has come…  By the end of the month we’ll be happy to show off our lovely new chairs and flooring!  There are pictures and videos of progress on Facebook: do take a look if you haven’t already seen them.


Welcome back Katrina!  Having severed a tendon in her foot, Katrina returned to work, all be it on crutches!  After her operation, healing is over a longish period of some weeks, but you can’t keep Katrina away, and our patients are very grateful that she’s come back.  Meanwhile, other members of staff are taking the strain of driving her so she can be here; now that’s teamwork!
