Staffing Capacity

We are currently experiencing a number of staff absences. Dr Chadwick continues to be unable to work due to post-COVID complications and one member of our nursing team is absent due to due to unforeseen circumstances. This means we have reduced capacity. Other staff are on planned leave and as a result this has placed pressure on the rest of the team as it has affected our capacity to provide nursing appointments. We have therefore limited our econsult service and the number of urgent on the day appointments in order to ensure that clinicians can work safely.

Please be understanding when you speak to a Patient Services Adviser as they will try their best to find a solution for you. If you are offered the opportunity to book an appointment with a pharmacist this approach has been agreed by the Senior GPs at the surgery and our patient services team have received training to help them to identify when to offer this option.

Please be kind when speaking to all members of staff. Thank you for your continued support.
