Practice's £1m arson nightmare

Arsonists have caused more than £1 million of damage to the Manor Park surgery in Leeds.

The surgery ­ which has 14,000 patients, eight GPs and an adjoining pharmacy ­ was gutted in a blaze believed to have been started by teenagers.

It is now operating almost a full service from temporary accommodation despite having three phone lines instead of 30 and very little clinical equipment.

Practice manager Ruth Wood said the first few weeks had been a 'nightmare', but the situation was gradually improving.
