Staff Shortages: 8th – 12th November

Week commencing 8th November 2021 – We are still very short staffed at the surgery due to GP, Nursing and Dispensary staff illness and absences.

We are currently at 50% of normal GP capacity and, although we are trying to obtain locum GP cover, this is very difficult at present due to a lack of GP locums. Where we are able to book locum GP’s, you may need to speak to a locum rather than your normal GP at present.

Please also be aware that we are not a “drop in service” and that all requests for appointments must be booked with our receptionists and are booked as telephone calls initially with the GP, who then will decide upon next steps depending on clinical urgency and symptoms. Minor injuries and minor illnesses can be dealt with by the local Pharmacies or Minor Injury Unit.

Any queries regarding Covid or Flu vaccines are dealt with by the North Cotswold Vaccine hub, open weekdays 10am – 4pm on 01608692115. Many thanks for your understanding and patience.
