We are very much open for business and we would encourage you to ring us when you feel unwell. During this difficult time where we are seeing high demand on our services and often low staffing levels. Despite this, we are still carrying out safe routine care for our patients. This includes annual reviews for patients with long term conditions, routine childhood vaccinations, cervical screening and pill checks.
The way you access help and advice from us has changed a great deal since the beginning of the year and there are some misconceptions about how GP pratices are working. We have heard feedback from some patients who believe “you can’t see a GP anymore”. So lets set the record straight.
- The GP will always try to help you by talking about your concern or health condition over the phone initially.
- If the GP needs to see you in person they will book a suitable face to face appointment for you either the same day or soon after.
So once again, we would urge you to contact us when you are unwell and need advice. We are here. #NHShereforyou
