The local NHS is currently dealing with high numbers of people who have caught the Covid virus, as well as other urgent cases.
This means it’s taking our GP practices longer than we would like to respond to calls and we are having to ask people who have less urgent health needs to wait a bit longer for an appointment.
We are continuing to prioritise urgent cases.
If your condition is not as urgent, we would ask that you look at the other options available for accessing NHS services e.g.
• Following self-care advice where you can from www.nhs.uk
• Using your local pharmacy for expert help and advice for every-day conditions
• Using our online services where you can request repeat prescriptions via the NHS app/ email or your practice patient online service – Doctorlink
• Seeking support and advice from NHS 111 online to direct you to the best service for your needs if you’re not sure what to do.
