Patient Update

 

GP cover is likely to remain unpredictable for the foreseeable future due to the Practice still being short of a full time partner.

We feel the best way forward is to continue with our current system of open access at the Wallacetown site every morning from 8am to 9.45am over the next few months at least.

This is to try and make it easier to see a GP on any given day and to cope with the high demand.

We appreciate your patience during this challenging time.

Patients who fail to attend 

Due to the dramatic increase in non attended GP and Nurse appointments, Family Medical Group have now implemented the following policy;

If you fail to attend 3 appointments within a 6 month period, you will be removed from our practice list.

Following the first and second non attended appointment, we will send you a letter.

Should a third non attendance occur during the 6 month period, you will then receive a letter advising you that you have been removed from our list. This letter will include details of how to register with another GP practice.

You will have 8 days from the date of the third letter before you are removed.

It is very unfortunate that we have had to implement these measures, but in todays climate where the demand for appointments is ever increasing, patients who book then fail to attend appointments are delaying the opportunity for others to see a health professional.
