The people of Marlow have praised the town’s doctors surgery after several members of staff were the subject of alleged abuse.

The Marlow Medical Group (Marlow Doctors) on Victoria Road put out a lengthy Facebook post on September 20, explaining that receptionists had been ‘sworn at’ and that ‘items had been thrown’ across the surgery by patients.

The social media post was met with sympathy by those who live in the area.

Another said: “These sure are difficult times, but I want to thank you all at Marlow Medical group for all you are doing.

“Well done.

“We are blessed.”

This person said: “Thank you for all your work to all concerned, particularly at this difficult time for all in the medical profession.

“I welcome the opportunity to get a consultation through different routes, as demonstrated with the flu jab process, which was impeccable and done within 10 mins end-to-end."

“I doubt the abusers would put up with it themselves.

“I for one appreciate all that you do and congratulate you.

“A patient, patient.”
