After the flood!

 If you have visited Longborough in recent weeks you may have noticed some changes! Not only have we recently completed phase two of our refurbishment but we have suffered the major inconvenience of a flood!

Fortunately for us the water damage was limited to the central core of the building, missing all of our new improved treatment rooms.

The flood was caused by a perished washer between our mains water supply the water tank in the loft. It's amazing that something so small could cause so much damage. The leak happened over a weekend and we are very lucky that the restoration work necessary is limited; it could have been so much worse.

In true Longborough style we've 'got on with it!' (Safety first of course). We've managed to keep the practice open with the help of our fantastic patients (that's you!). It is now even more of a challenge as we enter phase three of refurbishment with the added complication of the water damage repairs.

What is phase three?  With the very generous help of former partners Calvert and Hooker the front of the house is being re-rendered with a lovely white render and treated with a fantastic insulation system that should help keep the heating bills down in the winter. (Watch out for scaffolding over the next few weeks!) Then we start work on the refurbishment of the hygiene suite which will allow us to offer you a wider range of hygiene treatments and appointments.

Finally, as we work through this difficult time we would all like to thank you for your support and understanding; we are ever mindful that you, our patients, are at the centre of everything we do.
