As we are now in level one restrictions are easing, however there are a few precautions to keep in mind.
Please DO NOT enter the practice if you have flu/cold symptoms unless advised otherwise by one of our nursing team or your GP. Doing so would be endangering our staff and patients.
Masks - Although masks are not enforced in the practice in Level 1, we will require you to wear one if you have any respiratory symptoms including sore throat, cough, runny nose, fever, or shortness of breath.
If you do not have flu/cold symptoms still keep in mind that wearing masks are helpful for prevention or spread of any viruses.
Appointments - When booking for a face to face consultation please be aware that reception will continue to ask the question of whether you have any respiratory symptoms or not. It is important to let reception know so they can help you accordingly. Remember we permanently have the option of phone or video consultations so alternatively, reception are able to offer you a phone or video consultation with your GP.
Please be aware, that if you arrive into the practice for your appointment, reception will follow the screening process once again. This is to make sure everyone can be managed safely and effectively.
Be mindful of others around you when you are feeling unwell and remember the best place to be when you have these symptoms is at home!
