The Practice is Open
As well as continuing to offer remote consultations, the practice is open for face to face care.
At the moment this is a phased re-opening and It may take some time before services return to what was previously experienced as normal.
Please note that a closed door policy is in place and appointments can only be booked over the telephone.
To book an appointment or for further information on the new procedures in place to protect the health and safety of our patients and staff, please contact the practice on 01159382577 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of staff will be happy to help.
Personal protective equipment (PPE) has always been worn by our clinical staff, however the price of PPE has increased considerably since April 2020. Additionally, in line with national guidance, new standard operating procedures have been implemented by the practice. These help to ensure that our service is safe for both patients and staff. but do unfortunately increase our operating costs significantly.
Due to the increased cost of PPE and the enhanced PPE required to keep patients safe, we have introduced what we hope will be a temporary COVID-19 Safety Fee to our private fee list.
