APOLOGIES & THANK YOU
(updated Thursday 11th October)
As many of our patients are aware there was a local power cut on Friday 5th October which affected the practice at The Avon Medical Centre. Although power was restored late Friday evening the power cut unfortunately affected practice access to our clinical system. The clinical system is where we hold patient information. This also affects The Cander Centre. For safety purposes we were therefore only able to see patients with an URGENT condition. These patients were triaged by a clinician to determine the urgency and if required appointed to the appropriate clinician.
For patients who had pre booked appointments please accept our apologies but we had to cancel routine appointments on Friday 5th October pm, Monday 8th & Tuesday 9th October. Unfortunately, we were unable to contact patients direct as our appointment system is held on our clinical system which we had no access to. Please contact the practice to allow us to reappoint you.
Please be assured Lanarkshire IT department and EMIS (our clinical system supplier) worked extremely hard to get our system working again. Our practice team also worked extremely hard to offer you the best service available during this difficult time.
Our patients have been very understanding and as a practice we would like to THANK YOU for your patience during this very trying time.
Many thanks to all our patients again.
