Important News Covid-19 Virus

Derby Road site will be operating as an isolation site  from Monday 23rd March. The site will be manned by a full team of staff working via telephone and  e mail. We are also hoping to start using video consultations as well. All patients who need to be seen will be seen at  the Pinewood site where infection control protocols will be followed to prevent the spread of infection including the use of personal protective equipment such as masks, aprons, gloves and goggles. In the possible event that staff are forced to self isolate and / or become unwell , we will re -deploy staff from the Derby Road site as and when required. We hope in this way to preserve a resilient workforce for as long as possible. Any patient attending the Pinewood site will be given instructions to wait in the car park until asked to come into the surgery. ALL patient requests for appointments will continue to be assessed and prioritized by telephone and by e mail.  It is clear to us that many routine procedures and treatments will be delayed as we attempt to meet the needs of our most vulnerable and ill patients. We apologize sincerely for this and ask for the understanding of our patients.
