Did you know.     

In January Granta Medical Practice’s clinicians saw / spoke to 20,256 patients. This number includes urgent appointments, routine appointments and telephone appointments. 

Unfortunately, there were an extra 1,026 appointments that patients did not attend (DNA).    

February’s appointments totalled 17,876, but again there were an additional DNA’s - 1,043!     

Sometimes it can be difficult keeping to an appointment date and time. However, if you ring and cancel even half an hour beforehand we would be able to reuse your slot for another patient.     

Please say instead of DNA!

Barley Village Plan - have your say
It is time to review the Barley Village Plan which was created in 2015. 

The Parish Council will lead the review, but needs vital input from villagers. The Council will organise a public meeting in the Autumn to initiate the review and seek applications from villagers to form a working group to oversee it. 

If you are interested, the current Barley Village plan is now published on this site. 

Further news about the review will be published in The Diary, on the village Facebook group and through the Parish Council emailing list. 

For those not already on the list but would like to be, please contact Mel Chammings at barley.parishclerk@gmail.com.
