No particular comments. All staff work very hard though some seem to have more empathy than others. Too few full time GPS means a lack of continuity.
In order to see a GP in a reasonable space of time, I was told to use a specific app which was texted to my phone. This would then do a first diagnosis and determine if the surgery could make time for me. The app barely works, crashed and locked up repeatedly on phone so I moved to a laptop. Crashed repeatedly again but eventually finished and told me I would need an appt that day. Given the poor performance of the app I had to follow up with another call to the surgery later on to confirm they had received the results, an appt was then made over the phone. So, I question why this couldn’t be done in the first place? What happens if you choose the wrong option from a limited list of responses to a question and get mis-diagnosed by the app? What if the unstable app doesn’t actually request the appointment as it should? I’m fairly tech savvy but I fear for the older or infirm who would really struggle with this. Anyway, when I eventually got in to see the doctor she was great, took the time to listen and help and followed up the next day as promised, very happy with that side of things!
