Message to our patients:

BT - Open Reach were working on repairing telephone lines in Back Road, Linton and disconnected (without warning) all our telephone lines and our computer connection.

While the phone lines were down, anyone calling the Health Centre will have got the engaged tone.

Of course we are reliant on the computers now and when the computers go down without warning it makes consulting without the medical record very difficult.

Apologies to all those affected.
