COVID RESTRICTION UPDATE
19TH JULY 2021
Throughout the pandemic, we have strived to make the surgery as safe as possible for all of our patients and staff and will continue to do so going forward.
Public Health England have made it clear that it's infection control prevention control guidance is to remain in place for healthcare settings, so from the 19th July nothing will change at the surgery.
Patients will still need to wear a face covering, socially distance and use hand sanitiser. Staff will of course continue to wear enhanced PPE.
We do understand that this may be frustrating and not in keeping with other non-healthcare settings. However, we have to continue to follow the guidance from Public Health England. We have a duty of care to consider, the nature of what we do and the patients that we see, of which a significant number are in the vulnerable category. Our priority, as always, is to keep our patients and staff safe.
We thank you for your understanding and cooperation during these challenging times.
