We are happy to be able to announce that Northern Power have replaced the fauly underground cable outside the surgery and all being well we should have electricity restored for opening tomorrow. We would like to apologise to patients for the problems they have had accessing services these last two days. We really appreciate your support and understanding.
Unfortunately we are experiencing a power cut at the surgery due to a problem with an underground cable. Due to this issue we are unable to book appointments or order prescriptions but we hope that the power will be back on later today. Any patients with appointments should still attend the surgery unless they hear from the practice to cancel. We have an emergency telephone line set up on our usual number 01207 561736 for patients to ring if they need urgent advice. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Due to adverse weather conditions affecting staff and patients travelling safely, routine appointments are being rearranged. We are in the process of contacting patients. Please note the surgery car park is closed as it is deemed unsafe.
The surgery is open but there may be delays in patients being seen due to a shortage of staff. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
