Response to Press Regarding the Opening of GP Practices

You may have seen on the news that doors at GP practices are “reopening.” Fairfield Medical Centre has been open throughout the pandemic, offering telephone and online appointments, with face to face consultations available based on clinical need following a telephone discussion. This was, and still is, in line with government requirements in order to serve our patients most effectively, safely, and appropriately.

We are facing unprecedented demand for our services. This is not reflected in the national press. As we await further national guidance, we request that our patients continue to contact us in the same way, either online or by phone if needed, and we will endeavour to use our clinicians’ time to best support our patients – particularly those who need us most. We also request that you are patient with us at this extremely busy time as we try to manage the workload and care for you all as best we can.

With our thanks in advance,

Everybody at Fairfield Medical Centre
