Primary and Community Care
Some GP practices are trying to keep appointment slots free for any visitor “walk ins” on the Thursday and Friday before the race and the Monday after the race.
All patients who usually receive weekend care from our community health team will continue to do so during the Tour de France period, unless they have been advuised otherwise. This may mean a change in the normal visiting time or a different member of staff making the visit but these plans are being worked through to ensure no impact on our care for patients. Where staff need to get to a patient or resident (e.g. renal dialysis patient or patient who receives home care) and their visit cannot be re-arranged, alternative arrangements are being made to allow them to access these patients.
