We have now switched to the Orange setting of the traffic light system. While this indicates lower restrictions for the community, as a healthcare provider we continue to take the necessary steps to protect our services for the community and those who are most vulnerable.
We are open with all of our team available, so with winter approaching please don't delay if you have any concerns about your health.
We continue to encourage you to book virtual consultations (either phone or video) wherever possible. This limits the number of people that we have coming into the practice, decreasing everyone's potential exposure to COVID-19.
If you have any COVID-19 symptoms (fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, vomiting) please let our team know. We will certainly ensure that you receive care however we may need to do this differently due to transmission risks.
Transmission of COVID-19 is the most effective way we can protect our team and so correctly worn masks are compulsory for everyone entering any of our premises. These masks need to remain correctly in place at all times unless you are requested to remove or adjust them by one of our GPs or nurses.
If you are not wearing a mask for any reason, you will need to call us from outside the practice and we will make arrangements on how to ensure you can be seen safely. This includes anyone with a mask exemption. Rest assured that we are able to provide health care, however this is likely to be slightly differently to normal due to the increased transmission risks of being unmasked.
