Please do not assume we are too busy to deal with your medical care during this time – we are here to help even if that means working remotely in order to provide you with the routine care you need. Whilst it is essential that we minimise the number of patients coming into the Health Centre building, we have quickly adapted to new ways of working in order to keep the surgery safe for patients and staff. More information on the changes we have made is available on the ‘New ways of working for GPs’ tab.
Dr Mark Dornan, Chair of Newcastle Gateshead CCG has recorded a helpful video as a North East GP, outlining some key messages for patients during this time. The video is available on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/nRN5qICY6Xs
Dr Graham Syers, Clinical Chair of Northumberland CCG has recorded a message to patients regarding the resumption of secondary care services: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-eSWr77usI&feature=youtu.be
