Latest Primary Care video: Dr Karen Forshaw – Online Consultations

In this week’s Primary Care ‘myth busting’ video, Dr Karen Forshaw from Bentley Surgery provides an overview of online and telephone consultations which patients may have used for appointments during the coronavirus pandemic.

As Coronavirus hit the nation, doctors across the country were forced to adapt their ways of working to ensure patients and the public were safe and not at risk of catching or spreading the virus.

Throughout the pandemic, local practices in the borough have been open with staff working harder than ever to make sure patients still have access to high quality healthcare, with all practices offering telephone triages to identify what support patients need.

If you need healthcare advice, please always call your local practice first. If they are full and you need to be seen the same day, there are alternative health services available including the Same Day Health Centre, GP Out of Hours, late night pharmacies and the newly commissioned Health Bus which will be at various places across the town each week until March 2021.
