We are open, and seeing our patients face to face – and have always been.
There have been a lot of sensationalised reports in the media which imply that General Practice has been closed during lockdown.
Kingswinford Medical Practice has continued to operate through the pandemic, following NHS England direction to triage all appointments by telephone first, and make a case by case risk assessment to conduct a face to face appointment where clinically necessary.
You can see a GP face to face (well, face mask to face mask!). You will need to speak to a clinician first to triage the query. Many patients have been delighted to find that their issues can be dealt with remotely. If clinically required, we can then arrange an on-site appointment with you with PPE and infection control measures in place.
