The on-going Coronavirus pandemic has put an increased demand on primary care services in Wakefield.
As a result of this, and in line with last week's government's guidelines about staying at home to stop the spread of the virus, patients should NOT attend their GP surgery without an appointment and should make contact by telephone but only when necessary.
If you do need a face-to-face appointment with a clinician, you may be asked to be seen at a neighbouring GP practice to the one you would usually attend. This is because some practices will be closed or re-organising themselves to effectively cope with increased demand and suspected Coronavirus (COVID-19) patients. The location at which you will be seen will be communicated to you by your usual GP Practice.
These changes will begin to take effect from Tuesday 31st March.
As you will appreciate, this is an unprecedented time so your co-operation, understanding and patience are greatly appreciated.
