Some GP surgeries only seeing one fifth of patients face-to-face

Local GP practices delivered nearly 400,000 appointments in a month as demand continued to surge – but there are concerns some are failing to restore face-to-face consultations fast enough.

Practices across Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire provided 389,828 appointments in September, which was 44,570 more than during the same period in 2019, before the pandemic.

The figure includes both face-to-face and remote consultations, with physical appointments currently accounting for 62 per cent of the total.

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.
