Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make the surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff. We will continue to do so going forward. From the 19th July nothing will change at the surgery – patients will still need to wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the surgery and staff will continue to wear PPE. We do understand this can be frustrating but we know that when people attend the surgery they are invariably sick and vulnerable (and some cannot receive the Covid vaccination due to medical reasons) so we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions that can protect people. This approach will be reviewed again in August 2021.
