Dr Simon Stockley, Primary Care Lead for Virgin Care said: “Bank holidays are a busy time for services like ours so it’s important we offer services so that locals can access healthcare when they need to.” Patients are normally seen in time order however in cases of clinical emergencies this will always take priority and staff will communicate to the patients who are waiting.
