Welcome to Spring Hill Medical Centre

Dear Patients of Spring Hill Medical Centre

General practice appointments data released last week shows the enormous efforts that everyone in general practice is making to ensure patients can access the services they need. The total number of appointments for September is now higher than any time during the pandemic, and significantly higher than the same time last year. This comes at a time where the patient population continues to increase while the number of GPs has significantly decreased. Click here to view the results of the survey

Added to that, the results of a BMA survey, show that the total number of appointments only conveys part of the story, with remote consultations taking longer, which leaves GP staff more tired and with longer working days as a result. The results highlight how staff are working harder, are concerned that they are going to have difficulty meeting demand in the next few months, and are starting to burn out. The current general increased demand on primary care, added to the extraordinary efforts to manage the COVID response, are simply unsustainable and the BMA has asked for more support.

The BMA also met with Sir Simon last month to highlight the dire state of the morale of the profession. Sir Simon expressed his support for general practice, but since then practice workload has increased further. Alongside this, there has been significant, unfounded and unchallenged media criticism of general practice, which is deeply concerning.  This is not only adding to this problem, but is also leading to adverse reactions from the public toward their practices, with recent reports of practice staff being abused and harassed.

We would request patients’ understanding of the pressures practices are facing and their continued support in the face of this un-remitting pandemic.

ALERT – 5 NOVEMBER 2020

COVID-19 case numbers are rising rapidly across the whole of the UK. We must act now to control the spread of the virus. The single most important action we can all take to fight coronavirus is to stay at home, to protect the NHS and save lives. 

Due to an incident at the Practice : Do NOT attend the Practice if you have recently been:

  1. tested positive or have COVID19 (including 14 days plus) – ring the practice in the first instance
  2. and / or still symptomatic or developed new COVID19 symptoms - You need to arrange to have a test, stay at home.

OUR STAFF WILL BE ASKING PATIENTS IF THEY HAVE ANY NEW OR EXISTING COVID19 SYMPTOMS BEFORE BOOKING ANY FURTHER APPOINTMENTS AND BEFORE YOU ENTER THE PRACTICE UNTIL END OF THE NATIONAL LOCKDOWN.

When we reduce our day-to-day contact with other people, we reduce the spread of the infection. That is why, from Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December, you must:

  1. Stay at home, except for specific purposes.
  2. Avoid meeting people you do not live with, except for specific purposes.

These new measures will reduce the growth rate of the virus which will prevent the NHS from being overwhelmed – Please support us by adhering to measures in place and do not risk our staff, their families and other patients health and safety.

Letters will be provided by the government and sent to patients who are classed as extremely vulnerable ONLY – these include adults, children and young people.
