A MESSAGE FROM Dr ROGER NEVILLE-SMITH
If we do not know there has been a power-cut affecting the surgery the fridge contents will spoil - vaccines and insulin
Can I ask that if anyone has a power-cut to let me know by phoning the surgery on the usual number (616321)
It is possible that it might be a local problem or affect the trip switches. It would be best for me to check
