Hope you are all well.
Whilst government guidance changes on the 19th July in respect to the wearing of masks we will continue to ask that they be worn when attending the practice.
As a health care provider we have worked tirelessly over the past 15 months to create a safe environment within which staff can work and you can attend. Whilst the number of positive cases continues to rise we believe it appropriate to continue with our current arrangements.
So the door will remain closed, you will be asked the COVID related questions, asked to wear a mask and you will be socially distanced in the waiting room.
Please note that we are still open from 8am until 630pm, we are still running our minor conditions clinic and have a duty doctor dealing with emergencies. We are still operating on a telephone triage basis initially, however, if you need to be seen face to face then the clinician will book you in. Please respect the job that the receptionists are doing, they are working to protocols set out by the partners in order to keep this practice operating as efficiently as possible.
We hope you understand the reason for us continuing to work in this manner: the situation will be reviewed regularly and changes made where appropriate. Our key focus is keeping the staff and community as safe as possible, thank you for your understanding and continued support.
Take care of yourselves 😊
