BMA says support your surgery!

Support your surgery so it can be there to support you.

Face to face contact has been limited across all NHS services to protect you and keep you safe from the risk of infection. We know that it’s been frustrating for some of you who have not always been able to book a face to face appointment.

Despite lockdown measures lifting we must be honest and tell you the pandemic has not ended, the threat of Covid 19 remains and general practice will struggle to meet the growing needs of patients. This is not the way we want it to be. But nationally there are millions of patients whose treatment has been delayednow seeking help, more tests to administer and more bureaucracy as well as millions more vaccine appoinments to deliver in the coming months.

We can’t meet this challenge without more support. General Practice desperately needs help which is why Whitemoor has joined the BMA campaign to provide the funding to provide better services, more GPs and staff to see you promptly and suffcient safe space in waiting areas and for staff to see you.

Please take a minute to sign our petition and show your support for your local practice.

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.
