The Photographic Competition winners photographs have been collated into a calendar which is for sale at reception. They have been selling well and there are still a few left. The balance of monies raised after paying for printing costs will be donated to the local Air Ambulance service. The competition proved popular locally and we would like to do something similar next year involving local people and communities. We will be asking for feedback on the back of this years patient surveys in early January.
Following many changes over the last year we now have a new team of doctors at the surgery. Dr Wade is the Senior doctor for the practice with Dr's Rizal, Marchant, Lockyear and Lakha making up the clinical team. For the last few months we have been joined temporarily by Dr Day who will be leaving us at the end of November when she goes travelling. She may re-join us later next year when she returns.
Despite the recent changes in the health visiting service we have managed to retain the Friday morning drop in, the availability is reduced but it is on the first Friday of the month 9.30 to 11.00.
