Dental patients among thousands affected by Dotshill Medical Centre fire
Dental patients are among thousands affected by a fire at Dotshill Medical Centre. The centre, which houses a GP surgery, a pharmacy, a podiatry clinic and a dental practice, has been forced to close after fire broke out at the premises on Saturday 3rd November.
It is believed that the fire was caused by a stray firework, which landed on the roof of Cadogan Road centre. The facility has been damaged extensively, and yesterday morning (Monday 5th November), an emergency meeting took place to determine what kinds of measures could be employed in the short-term to minimise disruption to patients. It is estimated that the combined health services serve around 10,000 patients.
GP patients have been moved to surgeries in Wilnecote and Glascote on a temporary basis, while patients who have a dental appointment booked at the centre have been advised to call the practice on 01827 282237 for further information. Patients who were planning to collect prescriptions from Dotshill Pharmacy have been advised to contact sister branches at Fazeley or Tamworth.
