Thank you to Dr Ibbett from Capelfield Surgery in Claygate for taking the time to meet with me and John Cope recently to show us the fantastic facilities they have at the surgery, and to discuss what we can do to further support GP practices.
It was valuable to hear how Capelfield Surgery can do minor operations at the practice, helping to keep patients close to home and alleviate pressure on hospitals. Capelfield Surgery are also encouraging their patients to order repeat prescriptions through the NHS app or on their website. If you are a patient at Capelfield Surgery, can find out more about how to do this here.
Our Plan for Esher and Walton constituency includes strengthening local NHS services. You can read more – including how there are now 19% more patient care staff practicing in GPs across Esher and Walton than before the pandemic – here.
