Practice News: Dr Anthony will be retiring from the Practice on 31st January 2022 after 35 years. In the interim period Dr Napal-David, our senior GP Registrar will take care of his patients. We wish him a happy retirement.
Dr Jegerov will now become a GP Partner at the Practice from 1st February 2022.
From April 2022 nothing will change at the surgery – patients will still need to wear a mask, social distance and use hand sanitiser in the surgery. Staff will continue to wear PPE.
We appreciate this can be frustrating but we know that when people come into the surgery the are sick and vulnerable, so we feel it would be wrong not to take these precautions.
We NEED to keep the surgery safe for ALL patients and staff.
Thank-you for your understanding.
As you will know, our GP practice has been open throughout the pandemic, offering patients telephone and online appointments, with face to face consultations available for those who need them. This was in-line with national requirements to keep patients safe, whilst COVID infection rates were high and before the vaccination was widespread.
GP practices are now being encouraged to offer patients a choice of whether they would like a remote or face to face consultation. However, we ask that patients continue to contact us by phone or online as you have been doing. We are facing unprecedented demands for our services and will need to continue to adjust how we use our clinicians’ time to best support our patients – particularly those who need us the most.
Thank you for your support.
