We have been advertising for 3 salaried GPs for several months now, so far we have not been successful. There is a nationwide crisis of recruiting doctors and Kent & Medway is especially affected. We will still endeavour to use all our efforts and resources to recruit GPs.
We have successfully employed Locum GPs in the past and we will continue to do this. This does not offer the same levels of continuity and cost effectiveness for our patients.
We are still committed to working as a team under the supervision of Dr Pancholi however this team includes YOU, the patients; therefore we would appreciate your continuing support, understanding and patience through this transitional period.
As a result there maybe times when there is a longer wait for some services.
We always appreciate and respond to YOUR constructive feedback. It is important that we hear from our patients whether they are good or bad comments as this can help us to learn or make improvements, if we can.
