Following the recent government guidance FHC would like to reassure patients that we continue to offer face to face appointments, as we have throughout the pandemic. In most cases these appointments will be booked by the doctor after you have consulted with them remotely. This will enable our doctors to prioritise medically urgent problems in a time of unprecedented demand, and allow us to continue to practice in a COVID-safe way.
The demand for appointments is high at the moment and so waiting times for routine appointments may be longer. In an attempt to increase our availability we have recruited another GP partner, we continue to offer appointments with our experienced nurse practitioner, and we also have an MSK Practitioner and Paramedic as part of our clinical team.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.
If you have an appointment to be seen at the surgery, then please wear a mask - thank you.
