Covid 19 Restrictions
Updated April 2022
Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic we have strived to ensure the surgery is as safe as possible for all our patients and staff.
We will continue to do so going forward, patients will continue to be required to;
- Wear a face covering,
- Maintain social distancing,
- Use hand sanitiser when entering the surgery,
- Staff will continue to wear PPE.
We understand that it can be frustrating, however we know that when patients attend the surgery they are potentially very unwell and vulnerable therefore we feel it would be wrong to not take these simple precautions to help protect our patients and staff.
We have been open throughout the Covid 19 pandemic and in fact have consulted with a much higher number of patients than we did before Covid 19.
We appreciate your continued support and understanding in our effort to minimise the impact of Covid 19 on the surgery.
If you start with any of the following symptoms please ring the surgery before attending and inform the staff:
High Temperature, New Persistent cough, Loss of Smell/taste.
CHILDHOOD VACCINATIONS WILL CONTINUE AS NORMAL
CONTACT 111 IF ANY QUERIES (EITHER ON THEIR WEBSITE OR PHONE)
