GP appointments

We have decided to undertake a trialed return to more ‘normal’ GP surgeries from the first week of October.

As you may know, since the start of the pandemic, we have been seeing patients face- to face based on clinical need following an initial telephone triage call with a Doctor.

We are keen to return to more standard GP clinics. But as we see a large spectrum of patients, from those with infectious diseases, to those who are clinically vulnerable due to chronic illness, we need to do this safely.

As such, we are proposing to run a trial period of mixed surgeries with a few of the GPs. We intend to re- open the waiting room and would ask that when using this, social distancing rules and masks are adopted where possible.

We will be encouraging the reception team to continue to ask brief medical details about the nature of your problem so that we can safely identify patients with symptoms that need isolation.

In the first instance, we will be operating this trial as a mixture of face- to face appointments and telephone calls in response to the very variable feedback about preference for both of these modes of consultation.
