COVID19 Update

A very warm welcome back!

During the period of closure due to the national lockdown, we have been especially busy sourcing hard to come by PPE (respirator masks, gowns etc) and adapting the Practice to ensure your safety and that of our staff too.

We have installed a protective screen at reception, removed unnecessary articles from reception, and reduced the seating capacity to ensure the advised distancing is possible. We have installed air filtering and sterilizing equipment in reception and the surgeries and a hand sanitizer point inside the entrance so that you can decontaminate your hands on entering and leaving the Practice.

We have installed a protective screen at reception, removed unnecessary articles from reception, and reduced the seating capacity to ensure the advised distancing is possible. We have installed air filtering and sterilizing equipment in reception and the surgeries and a hand sanitizer point inside the entrance so that you can decontaminate your hands on entering and leaving the Practice. New protocols for screening patients and staff and extensive Infection Control regimes have been implemented, and in the treatment rooms, we have invested in state of the art aerosol scavenging systems exceeding Best Practice guidelines

Initially we will be seeing to patients with urgent problems and then we have a lot of catching up with routine appointments which may not be for a while.
We will need to leave time in between appointments to decontaminate and will need to do some treatments at certain times so you may have to be a little flexible with scheduling.

It will be rather strange (for us all) to start with, and we would ask that you bear with us and follow our guidance, and hopefully, as the pandemic risk level reduces, we will soon be able to return to something more normal.

TO ENSURE YOUR SAFETY AND THAT OF OUR TEAM, WE HAVE IMPLEMENTED CERTAIN MEASURESā€¦

šŸ¤§ If you feel UNWELL, have developed a COUGH or LOST YOUR SENSE of SMELL, please DO NOT ENTER the building and rebook your appointment.

šŸ¤’ We will measure your temperature in reception. We will go through some SCREENING QUESTIONS with you to make sure it’s safe for us to treat you. If you have a RAISED temperature, or any signs of coronavirus infection are noted in screening, we will ask you to return after 14 days.

Ticket Icon Please come in ON YOUR OWN (or with only one other person). Please LEAVE BAGS & COATS in your car.
We can only see patients with pre-booked appointmentsā€¦please book in by telephone and don’t just turn up. We have to ensure that social distancing measures are compiled with wherever possible.
