Just a quick update reminding everyone that although we are now doing most of our consultations via phone or video consult (via doxy.me), we are fully staffed and very much open for business as an essential service. Links to our digital waiting rooms are available on the front page of our website.
We are also splitting our reception staff, nurses and doctors into 3 'pods' to reduce the amount of potential spread of COVID-19, if one of us were to be exposed.
Opening hours continue as:
Monday - Friday open 9am - 5pm
This allows for staff meeting and admin time 8am - 9am.
Appointments will be scheduled between 9am-12pm, and 2pm-5pm.
We will continue to book routine immunisations, nursing visits (BP checks etc) from 12-2pm.
Our waiting room only has a few chairs in it now, and we're trying to only have 1-2 patients in the waiting room at any given time, for physical distancing.
We are also giving all patients a mask to wear and hand sanitiser on arrival to the clinic - please bring your own mask if you have one to conserve our limited stock!
Sorry for all the miscommunication here - like all general practices we have been very disappointed by organisation and delivery of these from the Ministry of Health's supply chain. We are expecting new stock to slowly come through, and are vaccinating our highest risk patients first.
We will let you know when we have enough stock to vaccinate everyone else!
