Response to National Media coverage of GP’s

Whilst the vast majority of our patients continue to maintain a very respectful and polite approach to our staff we are unfortunately experiencing an increase in isolated incidences of unacceptable and unreasonable behaviour.

If you are feeling frustration with the service you are receiving, we would be grateful if you could take the time to read the letter ( see link below)  that describes the current pressures on all GP surgeries. This is a response to inaccurate allegations appearing in National Newspapers and on social Media. These reports raise considerable concerns for both our staff and for patients and are not an accurate picture.

Please also play the YouTube video below which gives an honest picture from a GP point of view about how hard everyone in the NHS continues to work to provide the best possible service, under what are still very difficult conditions.

Please be aware that we will not tolerate any form of harassment and bullying of our staff and any such behaviour may result in the perpetrators being removed from our list.
