Surgery News

Just to update everyone, Dr Miller gave birth to a beautiful baby girl at the beginning of April.  I’m sure everyone will join us in congratulating her and her husband.

Whilst Dr Miller is off we have secured the services of two of our regular locum doctors to cover most of her sessions. Dr Hannah Williams will be covering from 12th April to 14th August and Dr Dorothy McDonald from 21st August to 15th December.

The Act creates a right of access to that information, subject to certain exemptions listed in the Act. More information can be found on the Scottish Government web site: www.scotland.gov.uk.
