Why Are GP Practices Still Working Differently?

The pandemic is not over.

All appointments are being triaged.

This helps keep you safe and makes sure the people with the greatest need are seen first.

We will see everyone in person who needs to be seen that way.

I wanted to see my GP, so why am I seeing someone else?

Many GP practices now include nurses, advanced nurse practitioners (who can diagnose and treat health conditions), occupational therapists, pharmacists, physiotherapists and link workers.

This ensures that you see the right person at the right time more quickly.

GP reception staff are a vital part of the health care team and ask questions to direct you to the best support.

They are skilled in assisting with triage and treat all information confidentially.

Non-urgent advice: Where else can I get help?

Visit nhs.uk for advice on common symptoms and a list of local services or speak to your pharmacist first for advice on minor illnesses.

Call 111:

  • to schedule a minor injuries appointment • for urgent mental health advice and guidance • if you’re too ill to wait for your GP or dentist to open

Urgent advice: What about emergencies?

Always dial 999 in a life-threatening emergency.

If you need help with minor injuries at any time or urgent care when your GP practice is closed dial 111.

Lets keep working together
