Launch of The Patient Guide
Our Friends of St Mary's PPG Group have worked extremely hard to produce a Patient Guide detailing the Local Services available to people in times of need. On Friday 24th November 2017 Local MP Kit Malthouse attended St Mary's Surgery to launch the reveal of these Guides. This was also attended by volunteers and workers from several of the mentioned services within the Guide and members of the Friends of St Mary's Surgery PPG group. Copies of The Patient Guide can be found in the Surgery waiting rooms or alternatively an online copy can be downloaded here.
