Can’t get a GP appointment for weeks? Here’s why

After so long in lockdown, it’s not surprising most of us have a few saved-up ailments alongside the new ones that we’d like to ask the doctor about.

But while we’re now permitted to visit the surgery, in some areas, getting an appointment remains impossible. Although many surgeries now run a phone consultation service or online support, for many people, a face to face is necessary – and as the wait lengthens, the health problems can worsen.

As a doctor founded, patient-focused company, Doctor Care Anywhere plc (ASX:DOC) believe that happy doctors mean happy patients. It’s a virtuous circle and one that we’ve built a great team to help keep going.
