We are pleased to announce the slow and cautious reopening of our practice shortly.
We hope this update finds you and your family in the best of health.
We understand how difficult it has been for all of us during this period of enforced closure.
It has not been easy changing the way we work to telephone consultation and triaging but we are pleased to have been available throughout the whole lockdown for any of you who have needed us.
We are looking forward to seeing you face to face again although there are many processes to follow which are now necessary as COVID-19 is still contractable.
It is important to note that although there has been some relaxation of measures by the government, we are still in a level 4 (serious) level of the pandemic, with level 5 (critical) being the highest. This means that there is still significant risk of infection to all.
We will be taking many extra steps for all our safety.
Appointments will not be like before and we will have a careful protocol. We are unfortunately still restricted in terms of certain procedures that we can perform. We will be triaging patients and carring out a full individual risk assessment to determine the urgency of need.
We will be zoning our diaries to set set aside time for specific procedures which will mean less flexibility in appointment availability. Please wait for our team to contact you for an appointment. Appointments that are already in the book may need to be resheduled. We shall be in touch if this is the case.
Whilst many things have changed, we want to reassure you that we remain committed to your safety and positive experience in our practice. We have always maintained the highest standards of infection control. These extra measures that we have invested in will provide reassurance to us all.
We are very much looking forward to seeing you all in this staged return. We will continue to be available for urgent telephone advice as before.
