REDUCED WAITING ROOM AREA
5TH MARCH to 22nd MAY
During the above period our waiting room area will be reduced whilst work on the extension takes place behind temporary hoarding. To help us ensure we have enough seating for those who need it we ask the following:
· Please do not arrive too early for your appointment
· Please only bring someone else along if they need to attend the appointment with you
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but do hope that you can bear with us!
All being well, we have our full waiting area back in use at the end of May.
TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF PRACTICE LIST
From Tuesday 19th February 2019, for a period of 6 months, the practice will not be accepting any new patient registrations, either temporary or permanent* This is to ensure that patient care and safety are not compromised whilst we cope with the work of the build going on around us.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but do hope that you can appreciate this has been a necessary measure to take and has been fully agreed with NHS England.
All being well, our list will re-open to new patients again on Tuesday 20th August 2019.
*the only exception to this is if the patient wishing to register is an immediate family member of an existing patient and resides in the same household.
Let the build commence!!..
Finally, after 5 years getting to this point, work has finally started on our long-awaited 2 storey extension to the practice!
The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed lots of to-ing and fro-ing in our staff car park over the last day or say as the contractors (Lindums) move in and start to set up on site. The car park is now home to their portacabin office and equipment.
Over the coming weeks you will start to see more activity and the beginnings of the new extension will emerge. There will be some impact to the practice - at some point we will lose half of the current waiting room and an existing consulting room for a while - we are busy planning the best way to work around these but there will inevitably be some disruption. We will do our very best to keep things running as normally as possible.
If all goes to plan the build will take 24 weeks from start to completion, so by the end of July we will hopefully have 4 shiny new consulting rooms!
The plans will go up in the main waiting room this week so you can see what the end project will look like. We will keep you updated as work progresses.
We hope you will bear with us during this time as it is not going to be the easiest time, but hope you agree all will be worthwhile in the end.
If you have any questions or comments about the build, then please ask to speak to the Practice Manager.
