At Holmwood Court, Sir George and Marilyn Tucker - the local County Council candidate - met one of the partners and the practice manager.
"This is a popular local practice, with two branches. They would like to expand the one in the south, but the Government have withdrawn the arrangements for helping with capital expenditure and they are not sure how to fund it. They need more space to accommodate the growing range of services and courses which they offer."
"They are also worried about how to budget for the current year, as the practice income has only gone up by.9% - much less than the current rate of inflation."
Afterwards, the team moved on to Bishopswood Court - sheltered accommodation run by Sentinel - for a cup of tea and a chat.
