LATEST CORONAVIRUS NEWS
Appointments at the Practice
Following the latest Government announcement regarding the ending of lockdown measures across the country, we would like to make you aware of how this will affect your visit to the practice from 19th July 2021.
- Access into the building will continue by intercom only. Patients with Covid type symptoms should not attend the practice and instead call for advice.
- Patients attending the Practice will be asked to wear a mask or a visor. Patients refusing to wear a mask will be triaged to see if the visit to the practice is necessary.
- Patients arriving for an appointment can use our waiting room, but seating remains limited while we maintain social distancing between patients. If the waiting area is full, you will be asked to wait outside.
- To limit the number of patients in our building, patients are asked to arrive no sooner than 10 minutes before their allotted appointment time. Patients arriving too early will be asked to wait outside or come back closer to the time.
- While we continue to increase the number of face-to-face appointments available, these are only bookable following a telephone call with the GP or ANP first. Following your telephone consultation, if a face-to-face appointment is necessary, they will arrange this with you on the phone.
- Prescriptions will continue to be sent electronically from the surgery to your nominated Pharmacy. Collection of prescriptions from the surgery is not available.
We thank you for your continued patience at this time. Our team are working hard to continue to provide you with a safe service and appreciate your cooperation at this time.
Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:
- Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
