Due to long-term sickness, we have had to adjust our appointment availability to allow the GPs who are here to cope with Patient demand safely.
This has had an impact on the provision of routine appointments.
Please bear with us during these trying times; we are doing our best with the resources available to us at present.
We are trying to appoint locum GPs, but as you may already be aware from reports in the press regarding General Practice, there is a shortage of GPs, which has resulted in some practices having to close.
Our receptionists are here to help and advise you on how best to use our current system; they are not trying to block your access to a GP.
When they ask you questions, this is because the GP has instructed them to get as much information from you as possible, in order to provide appropriate treatment.
We hope you can bear with us during these difficult times.
Thank you for your patience
