Regarding the practice nurse Thomas Harrison, who has worked at the surgery in the last year and who has been absent from work for some months now:
Patients may have read in the press that Mr Harrison has been remanded into custody in the last week for alleged crimes committed away from the workplace. We await further details from the police.
Mr Harrison is suspended from work. The practice has robust safeguarding and chaperoning procedures in place and wish to reassure patients we are fully co-operating with the investigation and taking all necessary steps to ensure that there is no impact on patients. We have arranged nurse sessional support from neighbouring practices.
Please contact the practice manager if you wish to discuss this matter.
