Why can’t I see my doctor?
GP practices are open but are working differently in order to protect patients and staff. Red Roofs Surgery is operating a “telephone first” system. If, after speaking with you, the GP feels you need to be seen for a face-to-face assessment, they will arrange for you to come to surgery.
NHS Coventry & Warwickshire Clinical Commissioning Group have created a factsheet which helps to explain the changes in general practice which have been necessary since the start of the pandemic. Please click on the following link: https://bit.ly/3Bx2I6N
In line with the latest Government guidance, after 19 July 2021 anyone visiting
Red Roofs Surgery will still be required to wear an appropriate face mask.
