Members of Burnham-On-Sea’s Womens Institute have this week visited the town’s Love Lane surgery for a guided tour behind the scenes.

The group were shown how the surgery operates and also got a chance to meet some of the centre’s staff.

This was the first arranged visit to the surgery by a group of local residents. Organised by the surgery and the local Patients Participation Group, it allowed the opportunity to ask questions and suggest ideas.

“Our members were keen to be the first visitors and everyone thoroughly enjoyed both the visit and the opportunity to see ‘behind the scenes’,” said a spokeswoman.
