We Are Closed
  • This is a national issue, and not just a local one.
  • We have an ageing population and a high proportion of our patients are elderly, frail and with multiple health conditions.
  • We have a high rate of patients not attending for appointments, in November 2023 alone, 84 GP appointments were wasted, this is over 300 hours of GP time.
  • Wait times for outpatient appointments and hospital care are lengthening, and patients often need to see their GP multiple times while waiting for an operation or outpatient appointment.
  • An audit of our appointments has found that a significantly high proportion of GP appointments are being used to discuss administrative queries or issues which would be better dealt with by an alternative service.
  • The Grove has seen our practice list size increase steadily over the last 3 years
