The Middlewood Partnership would like to inform patients that over the last few days a number of our GP’s and staff have required COVID 19 testing and are awaiting results. Whilst results are awaited, there will be significant pressure on our services over the coming days. Until these GPs and staff receive a negative result they are required to self-isolate. We are very appreciative of the support that all our patients have shown over the past few months and we, therefore, ask, once again, that you ‘bear with us’ as we will have significantly less capacity than normal, due to the delay in swab results. We will keep you updated via social media and our website. The swab results for this group of staff will depend on how quickly we can return to ‘normal’ capacity. As always please continue to send requests via AskmyGP, but be aware that there may be a delay in responding. If you believe your request is urgent and you have not had a response then please call your usual surgery.
