We’ve been made aware of some concerns regarding Hungerford Surgery becoming “untenable” as it was operating at two thirds capacity.
We would like to reassure our patients that while we are short of GPs, we are doing everything we can to sustain the practice through this difficult period.
Further to our Surgery Update released in December 2021, and available to view on our website, we are very pleased that the two new additional roles, First Contact Physiotherapist and Mental Health Practitioner, have embedded very well into the surgery team and are hugely helping with the clinical workload.
Our administrative team is undergoing various changes to enable managing the rising demand and this is alongside our continuing efforts to recruit. We are also working alongside the Berkshire West Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Public Health at West Berkshire Council and our Patient Participation Group (PPG) who are all supporting us with these changes.
With all these measures, we hope to be in a much better position by the summer.
