After a major flood back in May, it is still unclear when a doctors’ surgery in the centre of Royston will reopen.

Market Hill Surgery was closed after the flood affected all floors of the building, leaving it in a dangerous position with ceilings coming down and all electrical equipment damaged.

Services are currently being diverted to Barley Surgery in Barley High Street.

Representatives at the surgery did not wish to comment, and the last update on the Barley Practice website was on July 1, which said: “Please accept our sincere apologies that Market Hill Surgery is still closed. At present it is still drying out which just goes to show how much water came through the building. As soon as we have news of when the builders can start the renovations we will let you know.

“In the meantime, thank you for all your help and patience during this very difficult time.”

A phone line has been set up at Barley for all Market Hill calls. If a Royston patient wants to order a repeat prescription online, they can put the name of the chemist in Royston in the ‘message’ box.
