From 1st July 2019, the surgery is obliged to reserve at least 25% of its appointments for online access, as part of changes to the national GP contract.
As such, we have made the necessary changes to our appointments system. A small number of on-the-day GP appointments will become available online at 8:30am each weekday morning. Our other online GP appointments will be released in a staggered fashion up to three weeks ahead of time. For our nursing team appointments, there will be a description of what matters can be dealt with in each available online appointment, so please follow the instructions. In all cases, you will be asked to provide a reason for your appointment so the staff can be prepared for it before calling you in. Please remember that we can only deal with one problem safely in each appointment.
We will be releasing more information about the national 'digital first' strategy in the coming weeks, including the NHS App, so please watch this space!
