To all of our Holbrook Surgery Patients.  

 

We want to thank you for your patience and support through this difficult and extremely busy time during the Covid-19 pandemic. The number of consultations we have needed to provide to meet demands has certainly increased, in line with national GP appointment demands. In view of this, like many surgeries, we have had to address the way our appointment system works to meet this.  

 

We will speak to patients first and to determine if there is a clinical need to see a patient face to face, that will affect the management plan decided for the patient.  We never stopped seeing patients that have needed to be seen face to face during the pandemic, and the number of patients we are seeing face to face since measures have been relaxed has steadily increased.   

 

We have learnt from the pandemic there are indeed conditions and requests that can be managed over the phone quickly, efficiently and conveniently for the patient.  

 

We are unable to give specific time slots for telephone consultations, unless appointments that are bookable online are accessed – these do give a timed slot which we will endeavour to keep to. Otherwise the call will generally be morning or an afternoon call. This is to help manage the daily workload at the surgery in terms of the volume and complexity of patients, emergencies, paperwork and home visits amongst other things. If it is important to you that the doctor phones at a specific time please note when booking and we will to our best to oblige, but cannot promise. 

 

We have also had the introduction of a couple of other services to improve access. We now offer econsults and Livi consults which can be accessed via this webpage and you will find further information on these services here.   

 

I hope this makes our appointment system clearer, and you understand our rationale for the above.

CCTV

As a result of damage in the surgery carpark we have taken the decision to install CCTV. Cameras will cover the carpark, front and back entrances.

Self Help

The NHS are encouraging patients to self-care where possible with medicines brought over the counter at a pharmacy. This of course freeing up GP appointments. Please see our appointments tab for a list of self help medications and listen to the following podcast.
