I heard on the news this morning over 60% people did not know that their doctor was open,
You can receive a telephone consultation,you can get a face to face appointment with your doctor,i am having no problem whatsoever with seeing my doctor
Are you having issues in seeing your doctor?

Mainly see the Diabetic Nurse these days, both in person and over the phone. My next appointment is for the beginning of October to go in and get my Flu jab. No idea if it will be administered by a doctor or a nurse, will find out when I get there.

I've never had issues getting a doctor appointment although I don't really go very often however I've had phone consultations before and I did have a video consultation during the lockdown. Isn't technology great!

I waited have waited a month for an on line (Video) appointment.
My problem is not serious.
I suspect that if the doctor thought it was serious my appointment would have been brought forward.
In the office is one doctor and two practical nurses

A sweeping generalisation.

We never have a problem seeing a doctor then or now.

My hubby has seen a doctor recently, been referred for physiotherapy, I had a referral and have since had a Dexa scan, plus an appointment with doctor to discuss results
We have both had our flu vaccinations, and apart from having to wear masks, our surgery has been operating normally for weeks now.
Happy to help.

Lenny, I cannot understand why you are waiting so long for a video appointment, a month is a long time,

Depends on where in the UK.
Some areas are better than others, but still bad here where I live.

initially and beginning 6 months of the COVID, yes I had problems with seeing my doctor, but now not a problem, they are just a bit slow on scheduling elective medical procedures etc...
