A message from Dr Watts, Senior Partner

Posted on February 22nd, 2022

Dear patients

The last 18 months have been amongst the most challenging for our country since the inception of the NHS, and the upcoming winter is likely to continue this trend.

We are now one of the largest practices in the area, and continue to grow and thrive, despite the challenges we all face. Our staffing levels have grown and evolved, and we have appointed new doctors, as well as a Physician’s Associate. Our nursing team continue to offer a very high level of experience and specialist skills.

In the light of recent negative coverage of GP services in certain sections of the national press, we wanted to take this opportunity to reassure you that we remain open for business, as usual.

Since May, we have allowed you to choose face to face or telephone appointments, and we will continue to do so. Our waiting times for appointments remain very low compared to the national average, and we still maintain continuity so that you can regularly consult a practitioner of your choice.

All our specialist clinics such as family planning, INR, asthma and diabetes continue to operate as normal. We firmly believe in offering you choice about how you use our services, as well as giving you swift access for urgent problems when needed.

Our Covid vaccination programme continues, with more than 800 boosters given at our most recent clinic, and we continue to offer Flu vaccinations as we do every year.

Thank you for all your support and feedback. We will continue to provide high quality, accessible primary care services to our population, whatever the circumstances.
