To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armistice on 11th November 1918, which marked the end of the First World War, we have assembled a small sample of the photographic and other memorabilia collected by the local Wilkerson family.  The images were scanned from the originals and processed to improve contrast by Peter McPartland.  They are reproduced here with the kind permission of Mr Geoffrey Wilkerson.

Thousands of appointments not attended at Granta Medical Practices
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!
