COVID Restriction Update

 

Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make the Surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff. We will continue to do so going forward.

 

From the 19th July, nothing will change at the surgery - patients will need to still wear a face covering and socially distance and staff will continue to wear PPE. The number of patients allowed into the waiting area will also continue to be restricted, and we will continue to utilise our one way system within the practice. We do understand that this can be frustrating but we know that when people come to us they are sick and vulnerable so we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions to protect us all.

 

Covid has not gone away.

 

In terms of opening up, as many of you know, we have never been shut and in fact have consulted with much higher numbers of patients than we did pre-covid (face to face, by phone, and by video), not counting vaccinating 90% of the adult population twice in the last 6 months.

 

We have come so far in trying to minimise the impact of Covid and we are sure you understand that we need to keep the surgery as safe as possible for ALL patients and staff. One positive case of covid within the surgery could wipe out our entire workforce for 10 days, and I'm sure you will agree, maintaining restrictions is a small price to pay in order that we continue with a full range of medical services, and keep our doors open.
