GP Practices in Portsmouth are under extreme pressure
Local NHS services are currently experiencing some of the most severe pressures in its history.
GP practices in Portsmouth have been facing rising demand for services, alongside escalating COVID-19 case numbers (a 65% increase) with cases in Hampshire higher than the rest of the UK. This rise in cases also means increased staff absences because of sickness, isolation requirements, or needing to care for unwell children.
