Christmas and New Year Cover

Friday, January 4, 2013

As you will be aware, we have 3 doctors currently on maternity leave. We have been covering them with locum doctors, as much as we are able.

We are very aware of the inconvenience that the lack of cover has been causing for our patients at times and we are working hard to try to resolve this. We are sure you appreciate that the partners and staff are working hard and putting in extra hours as much as possible.

The Christmas and New Year School Holidays are traditionally a time when it is difficult to find locum doctors.

In particular, the 4th January will be a problem and we will be able to see urgent problems only that day. 

We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
