Dear Mr. Graves

In reply to your letter of 19TH FEBRUARY 1996 it is confirmed that you are registered on the list of Dr. Veronica Vermillion from whom any necessary medical treatment can be obtained.

Your National Health Service number was not given at the time of your registration, and the Authority is trying to obtain it through the Central Register. When it is known, a Medical Card will be issued without delay.

Although the number is essential for registration purposes, you may nevertheless consult your doctor, or make use of the General Dental and General Ophthalmic Services, if necessary.

 

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Mr. Graves

As you may be aware this Authority recently took over the responsibility for running the practice of Dr. Veronica Vermillion with whom you are registered.

At the present time surgeries are being covered by locum doctors at THE LEMON GROVE, but I am writing to advise you that with effect from MONDAY 18TH MARCH 1996 the surgery will be relocated to 14 STATION ROAD. These premises were previously used as the surgery before Dr. Veronica Vermillion moved in APRIL 1995.

From MONDAY 18TH MARCH 1996 the practice will be looked after by Dr Simon Harrison.

Dr Simon Harrison's surgery times will be as follows:

 

Monday 9.30am - 11.30am 4.30pm - 6.30pm
Tuesday 9.30am - 11.30am 4.30pm - 6.30pm
Wednesday 9.30am - 11.30am
Thursday 9.30am - 11.30am 4.30pm - 6.30pm
Friday 9.30am - 11.30am 4.30pm - 6.30pm

As soon as permanent arrangements are made for the practice I will write to you again.

 

 

Yours sincerely
