A SURGERY group has warned patients of its planned closures due to staff absences.

Alchester Medical Group, which runs Langford Surgery and Victoria House Surgery in Bicester, started with the first closure yesterday.

For five days this month, either one of the surgeries will be closed and no clinicians or the dispensary will be on site during closures.
