Marie Curie Charity
We were really pleased that representatives for Marie Curie attended both Rosebank and Severnvale Surgeries recently informing patients of their excellent services helping people living with any terminal illness, and their families. Please see their website for further information https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/
During their time spent at Rosebank and Severnvale Surgery, they managed to raise a fantastic amount totalling £1458.24, which is equivalent to 78 Nursing hours and they have written to us to thank staff and patients. We will continue to support Marie Curie as they will be returning later in the year.
We are no longer able to issue repeat fit notes in urgent care for ongoing problems. Please book an appointment in advance to renew your fit note. You can cancel this on 01452 505 256 if you no longer need the appointment.
