Down at the Doctors
The trustees of our Jack May trust fund met in June and have approved the purchase and fitting of a bench just outside our main door, under the canopy. This was suggested by one of our patients, who shall remain nameless lest he gets ideas above his station, to enable patients to sit and rest their weary legs, perhaps whilst waiting for a taxi.
We have a new receptionist, Jade Barnard, who should have started before you read this, on 25th June. She has had 3 “taster days” and still wants to come and work for us!
However, Sarah Broad, one of our dispensers, is leaving in order to explore pastures new in Norfolk. We wish her the best of luck (!) and offer our sincere thanks for all her hard work and diligence over the last few years. She will be missed. We now have a vacancy for an experienced dispenser and all details are on our website (or contact our practice manager, Andrew Wilkinson, for details if you prefer)
Finally, in June we discovered 262 items of medication that had not been collected in the previous 4-5 weeks. This has both time and cost implications and we would appreciate it if you only order medication that you need and remember to collect it! Also, if any medication is stopped, or changed, at a hospital appointment, for example, please let us know so that we may alter our records.
It’s summer (?!) so, as I’ve said in previous years, don’t forget the sun cream, hats and water in the (hot?) weather (and not necessarily in that order!!)
