Important Information regarding booking GP and Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) appointments
Posted on 13 Mar 2020
In line with NHS England guidance, our GP Practice has decided to provide a total triage system for all our GP and Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) appointments. A GP or ANP will conduct a triage telephone consultation in the first instance and then decide what appropriate action to take. This is to reduce the risk of potentially coronavirus-infected patients attending the Practice.
If you already have a GP / ANP appointment booked, this will be converted to a telephone consultation, at which point they will decide on any further action.
If you already have a Nurse appointment booked and if it is deemed clinically necessary (e.g. dressings and INR blood test appointments), these will remain. Some Nurse appointments may be cancelled, in which case you will be contacted and informed.
