New GP - Dr Elaine Seeley
Coinciding with a change in Doctors sessions –
Dr Rivett and Dr Kasztura are going to reduce their hours starting February 9th 2018 which means Dr Rivett will not be here on a Friday and Dr Kasztura will not be here Friday afternoons – all their other sessions remain the same Monday - Thursday.
To ensure patients access to a GP continues we have taken on Dr Elaine Seeley to take over their patients on a Friday and she has many years GP surgery experience locally and an interest in diabetes management.
Measles Outbreak -
There are currently confirmed measles outbreaks in Surrey, Liverpool, Leeds and the West Midlands. There are also several large measles outbreaks across Europe, with Romania, Italy, Germany and Greece being the worst affected countries. In the South East we have a confirmed outbreak in Surrey. If you think you or your child have measles please ring the surgery first to speak to a GP who can advise you. Please note if you are asked to attend or if you attend without ringing first you may be asked to sit in an isolation area until assessed. This is for the protection of everyone and eliminates the risk of passing any infection on to others in the waiting area.
