A small number of our Practice Team have tested positive for Covid-19 and are currently self-isolating in line with current guidelines. Some other members of the team who are not currently showing symptoms are also self-isolating as a precautionary measure.
We have been advised by Public Health England that as all the correct infection control and PPE measures have been followed, the risk to patients who have been in contact with the practice is very low. As such, there is no need for patients to take any further action.
We have been liaising directly with Public Health England and NHS colleagues since these cases emerged and we can confirm that it is safe for patients with booked face-to-face appointments to attend the surgery where this is required.
We would like to remind our patients that if they develop symptoms of COVID-19, they should self-isolate and check the advice at www.nhs.uk.
Thank you all for your co-operation and understanding at this challenging time.
