How has the pandemic has affected General Practice?

There have been much media coverage and speculation about what has been happening at practices throughout the pandemic, sometimes with the assumption that as there are fewer patients attending the surgery it must not be as busy.  However, that has definitely not been the case.

Therefore, the practice, along with our Patient Group, felt it might be helpful to provide some information on what it has been like in General Practice throughout the pandemic.

Plans for appointments as Covid restrictions start to ease

Throughout the pandemic we have been running a mostly Dr triage system, with patients receiving a phone call from the Dr initially.  This was so that we could keep the numbers of patients in the waiting area at a minimum, for the safety of everyone.  Any patient that the Dr felt required to be seen in person was arranged an appointment at the surgery.

This process has worked really well with many finding it a more convenient way to consult, however we recognise that it is not for everyone.

As restrictions start to ease, we want to start to offer more pre-bookable appointments again, with these being a mixture of face to face and telephone appointments.  We need to be mindful of not wanting to jump straight to having a busy waiting room and also don’t want to lose the benefits that remote consultations have had for some patients. Therefore, we are initially offering more telephone appointments than face to face, but this can be changed as we move out of restrictions and depending on patient demand.

During this time, it is still vital that everyone remains vigilant about the risks of spreading the virus. 

Therefore, if you develop any of the symptoms below:

  •      a high temperature
  •      a new, continuous cough
  •      a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

Please do not attend the surgery.  You will need book a PCR test either online or by calling 119.  You and anyone you live with should stay at home until you get your test result.  Only leave home to get your test. 

For more information on booking appointments, see the appointments section above.
