THE island’s GPs will take part in a training session tomorrow (Wednesday) afternoon.
The Department of Health says the event will be ‘an opportunity for GPs to meet together, to share good practice, and to learn new skills’.
Each of the island’s GP practices will remain open tomorrow afternoon for patients who wish, for example, to make appointments, collect test results or order repeat prescriptions.
Practice nurses will be working as usual.
Provision has been made for any patient who is in need of urgent GP attention to be seen by an on-call GP in a similar way to out-of-hours cover.
