Staff at Haddenham Medical Centre were shocked to find that the ground floor of the property was ankle deep in water when they returned on Tuesday morning, 26th August, following the long bank holiday weekend.
Everyone responded very positively to the situation, and the bulk of the water was cleared out of the building after a couple of hours. However, carpets were totally sodden and patients and staff sounded like they were paddling on a beach as they attempted to move anywhere on the ground floor!
By the end of the day, plumbers had fixed the leaking water pipe and professional cleaners had completed their work to prevent the carpets from becoming permanently soiled.
We understand from practice manager Ellen Solley that as of Wednesday morning the Medical Centre is back up and providing its full service to patients once again.
According to Ellen: "the carpet is still slightly damp but not noticeable".
