As you may already be aware, over the past few weeks Highgate Surgery has been trialling a new service called AskmyGP.


The purpose of the trial was to examine the effectiveness of providing patients with alternative ways of accessing medical advice. Please be advised our initial trials of the service have now concluded and from Friday 14th September, AskmyGP will be suspended, meaning you will no longer be able to access the service.


Implementing a new system such as AskmyGP is a significant change to the way in which medical advice is accessed. Following the conclusion of our trial period, we will evaluate the effectiveness of the service, review patient feedback and take steps to review the way in which the service is delivered in order to meet patient needs.


If you require a medical appointment, please telephone the surgery in the first instance.


On behalf of all the team at Highgate Surgery and Barnsley Healthcare Federation, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has taken part within the trials.


Yours faithfully,



Dr David Shutt

Medical Director

Barnsley Healthcare Federation
