To all our patients,

 

Our practices are remaining open throughout this lockdown.   

We will be regularly assessing the situation over the coming weeks and it may be that we have to reduce services and opening times during this lockdown but we will remain open to ensure that we can provide the best services that we can at this uncertain time.

Please contact your practice via the telephone or through the contact page on this website should you have any queries. 

When visiting the practice:

 

  • Please follow all instructions provided by the signs and the reception staff and maintain social distancing at all times, wherever possible please visit the practice alone

  • Please wear your own face mask if possible, if not one can be provided​

  • Your temperature will be taken upon entry

  • Please DO NOT visit if you have any symptoms of the Covid-19 virus and instead contact us by telephone 

In addition to asking for your help when visiting us, please be reassured that we are also undertaking vigorous and extensive measure to ensure your safety: 

 

  • Twice weekly Covid-19 testing for all our staff including cleaners

  • Longer testing times to accommodate enhanced sterilisation of equipment and surfaces

  • Temperature and health monitoring 

  • Track and trace system

  • New breath shields, hand sanitiser stations and face masks available if necessary

  • Display frame sterilisation protocols

  • Guidance for our staff regarding clothes washing and personal hygiene such as hand washing

  • Appropriate PPE for all staff in practice

  • Increased cleaning of the practices overnight 

  • Electronic submissions rather than paper

  • We have also invested in new enhanced machinery to help reduce the need for close contact examination where possible

Please stay safe and continue to follow the regular government advice and especially the importance of social distancing and wearing a mask.

Many thanks and take care everyone,

Adrian and Mark, Directors
