High Demand for GP & Nurse appointments

Demand for GP and Nurse appointments is very high at the moment with up to a 1000 people contacting us every single day for medical help and advice.

Our reception team will work hard to try and find you an appointment if you need one but please remember that the GPs and nurses only have a finite number of hours in the day and our reception team can only offer you the appointments that are actually available.

Your patience and understanding is appreciated during this period of very high demand.

 

NHS England has confirmed that despite the Government announcement (27 January) relating to face coverings no longer being mandatory in public places, the UK Health Security Agency’s Infection Prevention Control guidance remains in place in GP Surgeries.

This means that we will still require patients to wear face coverings (facemasks or face shields), to maintain social distance and use hand sanitiser to enter the practice building. As we are a higher risk environment, continuing these measures will help to ensure that we keep all our patients and staff safe. Please help us by wearing a mask or face covering when you visit our practice.

Thank you for your support.
