GP RECRUITMENT CRISIS

DOCTOR SHORTAGE 

One of our full-time GPs, Dr May, retired from the practice at the end of December. Despite advertising both locally and nationally we have been unable to find a new doctor to replace him. This is due to a national GP recruitment crisis.

Under these circumstances we regret that you are likely to find it harder to obtain an appointment.

The Practice has so far been unable to recruit a much-needed new GP to replace Dr May.

GOOD NEWS

We have been very fortunate to appoint Dr Georgi Dines who is working 2 days each week, however, this still leaves us short of approximately 87 appointments and 4 hours of GP admin time including home visits.

 

Please bear with us during this very difficult time, thank you.
