Locum and GP recruitment

Dated: 13-Apr-16

Our regular locum GP, Dr Sonny Powar, is leaving us to move to a new position in Cardiff and we wish him well with his new venture. We are experiencing difficulty with finding a replacement locum, so this is likely to add to delays in obtaining routine appointments.
In addition to short-term locum cover, we are still actively pursuing a permanent GP to replace Dr Hetherington, who retired in October. This has proved to be exceedingly challenging as fewer doctors than ever are opting to work in general practice. We are confident that we will eventually find the right doctor for Hungerford Surgery, but as with a lack of locum cover, this will affect the availability of appointments. The GP Partners appreciate your patience and understanding whilst this recruitment process is taking place.
