A HEREFORD doctor's surgery will again be closed today (Monday).

Hereford Medical Group (HMG) has said that its Quay House surgery will be shut due to staff shortages. This will also be the case on Friday (March 15).

It is the second successive week that the Westfaling Street site has had to close on some days due to not having enough reception staff.


It was shut last Monday (March 4) and Tuesday (March 5), while South Wye Medical Centre was closed on the Thursday (March 8).

Bobblestock Surgery was also shut last Tuesday.
