With demand for GP appointments running at such high levels across the whole country, we are regularly monitoring our activity to ensure we are safely providing as much capacity as we can.

 

Over the last four weeks ( 20 working days) one in four patients on our practice list has had one or more appointments with a GP or with our Advanced Nurse practitioner.

 

This is exactly the same proportion as during the corresponding four week period in September 2019 -  before the onset of the Covid pandemic. The difference now is that the demand for appointments is – for many reasons – much higher.
