Long waits at surgery

My wife and I live 200 yards above the hospital and I have used it a lot.

I taught at Granby and Cotmanhay Juniors before being a head at Awsworth for 20 years and often took ill and injured children to the hospital.

When the family practice started at the hospital my wife and I joined and it has been marvellous – so near, so efficient and so well organised.

We used to have to wait a long time for appointments at our previous doctors in Ilkeston.
