Weekly Patient Newsletter - Thursday, May 19 Posted on 19 May 2022

Welcome to the latest of our weekly newsletters. We regard it as a priority that all our patients are kept fully informed of all developments at Buckshaw Village Surgery, Croston and Adlington Medical Centres, our sites at Lostock Hall and on matters affecting former Eaves Lane Surgery patients. We hope these regular updates will continue to prove useful.

Ukraine Appeal

Wow! We renewed our appeal for items last week after the Chorley & District Support for Ukraine group said more supplies were desperately needed for the refugees.

And you responded in fantastic fashion as we were inundated with donations which our communications guy Tony ferried down to the collection depot this week ready for them to be shipped to Eastern Europe.

Thank you all so much.

However, more items are still desperately needed so if you have any spare toiletries, ladies' sanitary products, baby items, non-perishable foods, tins of dog and cat food and also items of clothing as long as they are clean and in good condition, please drop them off at one of our surgeries at any time during opening hours.

Our staff will be on hand to assist you if needed.

All donations gratefully received.

Our sites reopen at 8am on Monday, June 6 with normal opening hours from this day onwards.
