WHEN YOU ARE ATTENDING THE PRACTICE FOR ANY REASON IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU WEAR A FACE COVERING IF YOU ARE ABLE TO DO SO. THIS WILL NOT ONLY KEEP YOU SAFE FROM OTHERS BUT KEEP OTHERS SAFE FROM YOU. ____________________________________________________________________________________
CLINICS HAVE SLOWLY RETURNED TO THE PRACTICE WE HAVE NOW PUT A ONE WAY SYSTEM IN PLACE SO THAT THERE IS MINIMUM CONTACT WITH OTHER PATIENTS IN THE SURGERY
CERVICAL SCREENING PROGRAMME HAS BEEN REINSTATED IF YOU ARE DUE A SMEAR OR HAVE MISSED ONE DUE TO THE PANDEMIC PLEASE CONTACT RECEPTION TO ARRANGE ONE
We now have a reduced phlebotomy service. There will be a phlebotomist in the practice on a Wednesday ONLY with limited appointments. IF YOU MAKE AN APPOINTMENT PLEASE ENSURE YOU ATTEND, IF FOR ANY REASON YOU CANNOT- PLEASE CANCEL THE APPOINTMENT. THESE APPOINTMENTS ARE LIMITED AND ALL WASTED APPOINTMENTS MEAN PATIENTS WHO REALLY NEED THEM HAVE TO WAIT LONGER. We will monitor the non attendance and patients will be lettered for missing appointments.
This will be increased when it is safe to do so and when we have the resources available.

In line with current Government guidance patients are required to continue to wear face covering in all health care settings.
Face coverings primarily protect others, so doing so - unless exempt - is key to preventing the spread of infection.

TEST AND ISOLATE IF YOU HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS If you have symptoms you must get a PCR test as soon as possible & before you visit your GP. RAPID LATERAL FLOW TESTS SHOULD NOT BE USED TO CONFIMN INFECTION, and for 10 days thereafter if your result is positive.
