We’re sure you’d agree that “thank you” always goes down well in life, especially when it’s hard earned and that is exactly what this note is about!

It won’t have gone unnoticed that the Leiston Surgery has been working above and beyond the norm serving its community this past year, and more recently delivering a tremendous and timely vaccination service.

To acknowledge the Surgery Team’s hard work, at the request of patients who have asked how to say “thank you” at this time, the Patient Participation Group (PPG), being a committee of patients that help support the surgery, has put a special plan in place to collect your greetings and contributions to do just that.

On asking - ‘If through a collective gift what would the Surgery Team love to receive to celebrate it’s hard work’ the Surgery replied ‘If possible, to have our staff room updated and an additional ECG machine’. The PPG thinks this is a great legacy to work towards.

So to enable this, from Monday 1 March until the end of May 2021, there will be ‘Thank You Stations’ around Leiston for patients to drop in a note, a card or indeed a contribution – to say a hearty “Thank You” to the Leiston Surgery and all its staff for being so outstanding at this difficult time.

However you wish to join in, or if you prefer not to, is of course totally your choice. The PPG is just looking to help in its capacity as being a support to both the Surgery and patients alike and is looking to collect all those “Thank You’s” on behalf of its patient community.
