The demand for appointments at both The Simpson Centre and Penn surgery have recently far exceeded capacity over the past few months. In order to address this, the partnership has looked carefully at all possible options and decided to make some staff changes in order to meet the patient demand and ease the pressure on staff who have been struggling to find appointments for patients.
A complete review of Urgent and Routine appointment demand is further being undertaken by the partners.
From 15th July 2019, Dr A Aggarwal and Dr Victoria Harris will move over to Penn Surgery and Dr Juhi Tandon will move to the Simpson Centre. We hope that all the staff and patients will welcome this change as it will help address many issues including patient access, room availability, appropriate use of the Paramedic team and a balanced approach to GP training across both sites.
