GP Newsletter

For all GPs and practice staff in Haringey


2nd July 2019

Dear all

Summer is finally upon us, and I’m sure a number of you will be looking forward to having some much deserved time off to enjoy the seasonal weather. We recognise that the summer months could see an increase in the use of health services, particularly A&E and so we’re reminding and encouraging practices to continue promoting alternative services which would be more appropriate for less urgent needs, such as the GP Hubs.

The CCG has created a brand new service video to help promote the GP Hubs which gives the hub locations and explains the booking process for patients. We would really appreciate if you could ensure the GP Hubs video is displayed on your practice website with accompanying GP Hub information.

The GP Hubs can help reduce the number of unnecessary A&E attendances and also provide more flexibility for patients, by offering both evening and weekend appointments. Please continue to offer these appointments to your patients, especially if they require an earlier appointment than your practice can provide. Thanks for your support.

Best wishes 

Peter
