e-Consult Information -

Over recent months we have been struggling to cope with the demand we receive daily for our services.  Covid has forced us to adapt our ways of working which has led to us triaging the majority of contacts on the day we receive them, something that we have never done before and do not have the capacity to manage long-term. 

 Therefore with the authorisation of our CCG we have taken the difficult decision to turn off the ability for patients to send in an eConsult from 6pm on a Friday until 6pm on a Sunday each weekend.  This decision has been made after months of coming into the surgery on a Monday to in excess of 30 eConsults which have been sent over the weekend.  As you will appreciate our normal working hours do not generally give our patients the option to contact us over weekends as there are other services available to patients during this time, from which you can access medical advice, such as 111. 

 We thank you for your continued support and understanding.
