Terrington doctors set up surgery in scout hut
A village GP surgery serving 6,500 patients is moving into temporary accomodation in a scout hut.
The Terrington St John practice is being taken over by primary care group First Health.
But the outgoing partners have refused their offer of �475,000 for the surgery building.
From Monday doctors, nurses and receptionists will transfer to a temporary home in the village scout hut. A nearby pub has also offered the use of its function room.
Portable buildings are on order, but are not expected to arrive until the middle of December.

Talks over the current surgery building are believed to have broken down completely, meaning First Health will have to build a new surgery longer-term - the village's second in 10 years.
