Thank you to all our patients for your consideration over calling us and observing the new dispensary opening hours (closed between 12.30 and 2.30pm). This has made a big difference to the staff and enabled us to keep up with the demand whilst coping with reduced staff due to self isolation and trying to have a safe number of staff in the building to observe social distancing.
We have adopted a completely new way of working over the past 2 weeks and even introduced video consultations in order to keep face to face contact down to an absolute minimum.
You will be aware that all routine checks such as long term condition reviews have been paused until we are through the worst of this outbreak, but please be aware we are still here for you. If you need to speak to a doctor or nurse about any aspect of your health, you can still call or ask a question via the website.
Please do not worry that you will be disturbing us. It is what we are here for, and there are other illnesses out there, all of which can still be assessed and dealt with, albeit over the phone in the first instance.
Thank you for all your co-operation. Stay home and stay safe
