Non-urgent advice: Patient Notice
Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, The Wycliffe Medical Practice has followed Government Guidelines around the type of appointments we are able to provide. Even with restrictions in place, our GP and Nursing teams have still seen a large number of patients face to face during this time. Currently, face to face appointments at the surgery are booked after you have spoken with a GP first on the telephone to assess the problem.
As a surgery, we are keen to get back to some kind of pre-pandemic service, however with Covid cases high throughout the country, we still have a duty of care to all our patients and staff. This means assessing all risks individually and ensuring that we are able to continue to provide a safe and reliable service for all. At the minute, we feel that changing all of our appointments to face to face ones and therefore increasing the number of patients coming into the surgery could see our vulnerable patients un-necessarily compromised. We would also run the risk of having to close the surgery completely if our staffing levels fall below a minimum operating standards due to a high number of positive cases.
Taking into consideration current government guidelines, it is our plan to continue with our current telephone triage appointment system and look to start implementing a tiered return to Face to Face appointments when we have more information and can be sure that we will be able to continue to provide core services.
