Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make the Practice 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 Practice – patients will need to still wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the Practice and staff will continue to wear PPE. We do understand that it can be frustrating but we know that when people come to us they are sick and vulnerable (and some cannot receive the Covid vaccinations due to medical reasons) so we feel it would be wrong to not take these precautions that protect people.
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 via the website)
We have come so far in trying to minimise the impact of Covid and we are sure you will understand that we need to keep the Practice as safe for ALL patients and staff as we can.
