As we are all aware, the current Coronavirus pandemic has presented huge challenges over the last few months. Nobody has been immune from the disruption and uncertainty.
While the number of deaths from the virus is falling, coronavirus remains a very real threat to everyone and the practice cannot simply return to “normal”. To let our guard down now would risk the safety of our staff and patients, and this is not something we are prepared to do.
We are working hard to find new ways of working to ensure the safety of our patients and staff, whilst ensuring that patients receive the care they need. A huge amount of work and planning is going on behind the scenes to restart services and keep everyone safe. Clinicians are currently triaging all patients over the telephone or by video consult to ensure the ongoing protection of patients and staff.
If we ask you to attend the surgery please ensure you wear a face covering. Unfortunately we cannot supply masks – the supplies of PPE are unreliable and we must preserve stocks of clinical masks for our staff so that we can protect you, our patients. We do not expect you to wear a clinical or fluid resistant mask but a homemade face mask or scarf would be adequate.
Please notify us upon your arrival for your appointment by telephone and either wait outside or in your vehicle until you are advised that it is appropriate to enter the building.
If you are collecting a prescription, please only enter the first section of the building, wear a face covering and adhere to social distancing rules. If you wish to speak with reception then please telephone them instead of popping into the reception area.
The situation is fluid and every day brings new challenges. We are hugely grateful for the support, understanding and patience that you have shown.
Thank you for helping to keep everyone safe.
TUESDAY EVENINGS - NORMAL SERVICE HAS BEEN RESUMED
We are currently in the process of booking patients into our flu vaccination clinics. We have received an unprecedented demand for flu vaccinations this year and appreciate your patience. If you have been shielding or have a health condition that puts you at risk of flu then we will be in contact with you, however, you are also welcome to telephone us to book an appointment.
Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.
We have an open list and are welcoming new patients to register and be part of the practice.
