Latest news

Online appointments

Please be aware that online appointments (for patients using the online service) are unavailable for the time being.   

We are working hard to recruit further clinical staff and will open up more appointments to the online service as soon as we are able to.  We thank you for your patience in the meantime.

GP shortage

We are working hard with our colleagues at IMH to source and recruit new GPs to the practice, but like many other surgeries across the country, the chronic shortage of doctors is making this process more difficult than we had hoped.

This means that we are, regretfully, simply not able to offer everybody the appointments they want, when they want.  The three GPs working at Eldene at present (alongside their locum colleagues) cannot safely work any longer hours than they are already, so we are also unable to offer early or late appointments which we know would benefit our working patients.

We acknowledge that our patient list is growing all the time and that patients who have been with the practice for many years are finding these changes especially disappointing. 

The partners and staff would like to thank everybody for their understanding and offer their assurance that we are working hard to improve access to appointments as quickly as we possibly can.
