Although they are not employed by the surgery, we are fortunate to have all of these professionals working on site with us at Much Birch. However, in the event of sickness, training and holidays, they are sometimes unavailable to us, so we regret any inconvenience caused by their resulting cancelled clinics for which we at the surgery are not responsible.
