Noticeboard

Our statement on the recent CQC report can be seen at the bottom of the home page.

Many general practices across England are going through difficult times due to increased patient demand and the shortage of general practitioners.  We have had resignations by doctors and we have employed locum doctors to ensure we continue to meet patient demand. 

(As a measure of our ability to meet demand, during Sept, Oct and Nov 2014 there were a total of 377 available appointment slots that were not utilised.  We also experienced 444 DNA (patients that did not attend their booked appointment)

We have been in the process of recruiting replacement GPs and expect to have 2 new full-time GPs on board by March 1st and another full time GP starting in April.  In the meantime we will continue to provide good care with our locum and nursing team.

We expect that once we have these full-time doctors on board we will be able to improve the continuity of care which is always compromised when doctors are sick or relocate to other parts of the country.
