CLINICAL appointments have resumed in the Bixter Health Centre following a burst water pipe.
A spokesperson said NHS Shetland would like to thank the staff who have “worked tirelessly over the weekend and the last two days to enable temporary clinic rooms to be set up in a different part of the building”.
Remedial works will be required for the rooms that were affected by the burst pipe, and this will be done over the next three to four weeks.
“We are not expecting the work to impact on patient access to the building and thank patients for their support to the practice team,” the spokesperson said.
