NEWSLETTER  Autumn 2013

Hello. This is the first issue of our Patient Newsletter.  It is a new venture/idea which we hope will receive your support and encourage you to put forward ideas for items you would like to comment on or have included. This first issue is a general guide to the Practice. If you have difficulty in reading it because the type is too small or the colours cause you a problem, please speak to a member of our Administrative Team and we will try to get copies printed in a way that will help you.
