Urgent Update. Junior Doctor Industrial Action 14-16th June 2023

Posted by: abbiesutliff - Posted on:

We would like to advise our patients that some of our Junior Doctors are participating in this weeks planned dates for BMA industrial action for fairer pay.

Inevitably we have qualified GPs on leave this week and as a GP Training Practice with 9 Junior Doctors our capacity for urgent ‘on the day’ care will be reduced without them.

We have done all we can to maximise capacity this week but please be aware that when we have no appointments remaining we will be directing patients to 111.

We appreciate that this may cause some inconvenience to patients and would like to remind patients that West Cambs Federation now also provide GP, Nurse, Pharmacist and HCA appointments at our Alconbury Surgery 2-3 nights a week and Saturdays. If we do not have an appointment available as soon as you would like then please do ask our receptionist if anything is available in enhanced access.

We hope that you will be understanding of our Junior Doctors desire to ensure the sustainability of General Practice and would like to reassure you that we are doing all we can to provide a safe service to our patients.

Thank you.
Melanie Gearing
