Emergency appts only for GPs/NPs - Thurs 15 August
Posted on 13 Aug 2019
Due to a family bereavement of one of our GPs we have had to cancel any unbooked routine GP and Nurse Practitioner/Prescriber appts for patients on Thursday 15 August. To ensure safety of patients with the current staffing levels we have converted our appts to EMERGENCY appointments only on Thursday.
If you do need to be seen on Thursday, please still contact the surgery. Please be prepared to provide the Reception team with some details of why you need to be seen and the details will be passed to the on-call GP who will triage appt requests and appoint/contact patients as appropriate.
We do apologise for the inconvenience caused but hope you will appreciate that this is an unforeseen circumstance and we need to manage the needs of our patients as safely as possible.
Please note the CHEA Extended Access service does have a limited number of GP appointments available at CUMBERLAND INFIRMARY, CARLISLE on the evening of WEDNESDAY, 14 AUGUST for those patients who are able to travel. Please ask our Reception to check if these appointments are still available if you prefer this option.
