IMPORTANT – Capacity Issues 25th November 22

Due to a significant number of absence due to sickness with both clinical and non-clinical staff, we are experiencing a serious short staffing problem which will require us to offer only urgent medical services. We may also have to cancel some Nurse and Healthcare Assistants appointments; however, every effort is being made to re book
