We are aware that there is concern about the future of the Practice. It seems that a number of people are under the impression that the surgery will be unable to cope with the additional demands of the housing developments in the area and/or that at some point in the near future the surgery will close.
We would like to assure all our patients that we have a number of strategies to make better use of the facilities within the Practice as and when the number of patients increases. We feel that we can cope with the predicted numbers of new patients without negatively affecting the service we provide; although some refurbishment work may be needed.
in relation to staffing; despite rumours to the contrary, neither partner is planning to leave the Practice in the foreseeable future. Should the number of patients increase significantly, we have plans to take on additional staff. We do not anticipate any problems in securing any additional staff required.
We trust this short statement will reassure out patients of the security and on-going robustness of the Practice.
