PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The NHS have apologised after West Lothian residents were locked out of their vaccination appointments over the holiday weekend. Scores of locals were sent out their vaccination appointment letters for Strathbrock Partnership Centre over the Easter bank holiday weekend - but when they turned up the building was shut. The building had been closed for the Easter break, yet somehow appointments were arranged anyway. The NHS National Services Scotland (NSS) have apologised to people in West Lothian and say that this was down to an oversight but they are taking action to ensure it doesn’t happen again. One resident complained about turning up on Sunday and Monday to find the centre closed, adding: “Many many people turned up at The Strathbrock medical practice this morning (Monday) in Broxburn with vaccination appointments only to find the building closed and no one vaccinating, same scenario yesterday too.
