Noticeboard

The Partners and staff would like to welcome Dr Anika Patel to the team.  Dr Patel will be working 4 days a week and is joining the Practice as a Salaried GP.  Dr Patel has recently relocated to the Furness area from the south of England

REPAIRS TO THE SURGERY BUILDING

At long last work to repair the front elevation of the building will commence on Monday 20th November 2017.

During the work we unfortunately will be unable to use two of our consulting room and will once again relocate some of our appointments to Cohen's Pharmacy on Friars Lane, some of you will be aware of this process from when we had to relocate over 12 months ago.

We will keep as many of surgeries operational from the practice premises and when you make your appointment with the GP you will be informed of the location of your consultation.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and at this stage we aware of how long the work will take, but unfortunately these are essential repairs which cannot wait until we move the new premises at Alfred Barrow.

Thank you for your patience
