The new working arrange- ment is also morn convenient for patients. The KEG clinic is now open six days a week, from a.m. to 9 p.m., for a lolal of hours a week. This allows many patients to come in for testing after work' ing hours. The old hours wen? 8 a.m. lo 4 m., five days or 37'- hours a week.
