"Getting a GP appointment"

About: NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde

(as the patient),

I have concerns about my health and I phoned my GP surgery. They told me I would have to wait four and a half weeks for an appointment.

Response from Lisa Ramsay, Patient Experience Public Involvement Team Support, NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde

Good morning

Thank you for taking the time to post on Patient Opinion. I am sorry to hear that you have been advised by your GP surgery that you have to wait over 4 weeks for an appointment. However, GPs are responsible for their own appointment systems and I would advise that you raise this with the Practice Manager, who will be able to help. Alternatively, I can pass this on to the Practice Manager on your behalf, if you would like to email details to me at to Lisa.Ramsay@ggc.scot.nhs.uk.

Best wishes
