PLEASE NOTE DUE TO ANNUAL LEAVE THERE WILL BE NO BABY CLINIC ON MONDAY 7TH AUGUST 2017.
Due to a change in our GP workforce, we are at present suffering with a delay in routine appointments.
In recent months, we have had to say goodbye to Dr Thorogood, Dr Hunt, Dr Yilmaz and Dr Godson (who is now on maternity).
To help us through, while we continue to recruit new GP's we are operating with a variety of locums.
If you want a specific GP, you may have to wait longer than the next available GP.
We are trying our utmost to ensure we continue to provide a high quality service to our patients, but like most GP Surgeries in the country we are suffering from a national GP shortage and an increasing demand for our services.
We do have a varied clinical team, all have a extensive experience and knowledge. These include 2 Advanced Nurse Practitioners, a Clinical Pharmacist, and 4 Nurse practitioners.
It would also be helpful if you have an appointment you no longer need, then please let us know so we can allocate to another patient.
We presently lose 20 appointments a week with patients who fail to attend, this equates to 3.5 hours a week!.
Week Commencing 12th June 2017 - 34 GP appointments we missed by patients. This equates to 6.5 hours of GP time.
Dr Bowen is going to be joining the Practice on 7th August from a Practice in the Forest of Dean
Dr Bourns is joining us in September from a Practice in Staunton
