Practice update – July 2021

Following the latest government announcement regarding the ending of lockdown measures across the country, we would like to make you aware of how this will affect your visit to the practice from July 19th 2021.

Face coverings:

Although from July 19th 2021 this will no longer be a legal requirement, the practice would appreciate all patients to continue to wear face coverings when entering the building; this is to protect yourself, other patients and the practice clinical and administrative staff.

Patients arriving without a mask will be offered one before they enter. Those patients who refuse to wear a face covering will be asked to remain outside and communicate with the practice via the external intercom.

Appointments at the practice:

While we continue to increase the number of face-to-face appointments, these are still only bookable following a telephone consultation with the GP first.  Following your consultation with the GP, if it is felt that a further face-to-face appointment is necessary, they will arrange this with you during the call.

Prescriptions:

These will continue to be sent electronically to your nominated pharmacy.  Collection of prescriptions from the practice will not be available. Prescription requests will not be accepted over the telephone.

We thank you for your patience during this time.  The practice continues to ensure that we provide you with a safe service and we appreciate your continued cooperation.
