Thousands of homes and businesses were left without running water as contaminated rainwater seeped into the deluged mains.
In Gloucester, the area worst affected by the floods after two months’ rainfall poured down in hours, GPs have been told they will not have vital running water for at least two weeks as the water subsides.
Gloucester LMC chairman Dr Andrew Seymour said: ‘We were not directly affected by the floods at our practice but it has been terrible for others.
‘We don’t have any running water. It’s worse for the practice nurses because they need water for routine things like ear syringes and because the electricity is out we simply cannot contact many of our members whose practices have been flooded.’
