GP Care is now accepting routine referrals following the COVID-19 outbreak. We have taken extra precautions in our clinics to ensure the safety of staff and patients in the community.
Our clinics are running in a reduced number of locations in the Gloucestershire and Bristol areas and continue to be delivered from Swindon Health Centre for Swindon patients all with extra staff to ensure we follow the correct hygiene practices, and maintain capacity. We remain committed to reducing the pressure on secondary care and have been able to maintain pre-Covid-19 capacity levels in each clinic due to the process changes we have made.
As a service that provides extra capacity for the NHS, we are running an increased number of clinics in July to reduce our current waiting list to ensure a minimal waiting time for our patients. We expect to be running at full capacity from August onwards.
Please refer patients to our service in the usual ways as listed below:
· Gloucestershire Ultrasound – email or E-Referral
· Gloucestershire Urology – GP Care or Gloucester Hospital E-Referral
· Swindon Urology – via the Swindon Referral Centre
· BNSSG Urology – E-Referral
We pride ourselves on great patient care and on providing a safe and efficient service for patients who have concerns about visiting hospitals at this time.
