As most of you will already know Dr Fiona Erskine and Dr Claire Part both left the practice earlier this year. Dr Amy Bigham who joined the Practice as a Partner at the beginning of March 2018 has settled in very well. Dr Bigham works Wednesday mornings and all day on Fridays. We are delighted to announce Dr Lloyd Thompson will be joining us at the beginning of August. Dr Thompson will work Thursdays and Fridays. However, we do still have a vacant GP position which we need to fill. We are trying our utmost to recruit a new doctor but with the current GP shortage this is proving quite a challenge. We are hopeful it will not be too long before we are successful. We have secured the services of locums to cover the shortfall over the coming months to enable us to provide the same level of service but there are some days where we may have fewer GPs on duty. We ask for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
