The Primrose Hill Patient Participation Group reports that negotiations are ongoing for a new fifteen-year lease on the premises that were recently sold to a local buyer. The District Surveyor is involved to set a fair rent and there seem to be good intentions on both sides.
The surgery reception is now open: 8 a.m. to 12.30 p.m., 2 p.m. to 7.30 p.m. on Mondays; and till 6 p.m. every other weekday, including Thursdays. Extra telephone appointments are now available, and the weekly clinics at Oldfield have been resumed. Evening and Saturday appointments can be made at Swiss Cottage Surgery by ringing 020 7391 9979.
Meat Free Mondays in March kicked off with a delicious vegetarian brioche stuffed with mushrooms, spinach, raisins and rice at Sylvia’s Kitchen, the Oldfield Lunch Club. The dish was created by local chef trainer Michael Wright. Meat Free Monday’s vegan set lunch at Greenberry featured dairy-free ice cream.
L’Absinthe supporting Community Association
During the month of April, L’Absinthe has offered to donate 10% of the total of the bill (excluding service charge) back to Primrose Hill Community Association when members go there for lunch or dinner. You must mention it before sitting down or when booking.
Over sixty people came to the Library on a chilly February evening to say goodbye to Dr Lim, who has retired after fifteen years at Primrose Hill Surgery. John Nutt, chair of Primrose Hill Patient Participation Group, thanked Dr Lim for her care over the years, and Dr Lim spoke of her achievements in expanding the practice. A delicious cake made by Kay Arumugam was enjoyed. A message from someone who couldn’t attend summed up the sentiment: “Dr Lim was a super GP, caring, kind, sensible, practical and no-nonsense. She helped us through some difficult times and will be much missed.”
