Covid restriction update from Dashwood Medical Centre
Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make your surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff.
We will still continue to do this going forward
In terms of "opening up "as you know we have never shut and in fact have consulted with mush higher numbers of patients thank we did pre-covid (face 2 face, phone triage and e-consult)However people come to the surgery when they are sick and vulnerable and whilst we have vaccinated a large proportion of our adult population, some of our population cannot receive the vaccine due to medical reasons. Therefore, in line with guidance from Public Health England and our commissioners we will continue to request patients
1.wear a mask when attending the surgery
2. socially distance where possible
3.use hand sanitiser on entry
As a community we have all come so far in trying to minimise impact of covid and we are sure you understand that we need to keep our surgery as safe as we can, particularly as infection rates are expected to rise over the coming months
General blood samples please be advised due to a national shortage of supply of blood containers / bottles we are being advised we can only request clinically urgent samples to send for testing. This is not something the practice has control over and we can only apologise for delays with our patients.
Dear Patient can we please ask as our patients, when you receive a request for the national screening programmes for Bowel screening, Breast screening, Cervical screening and child immunisations we would encourage all our patients in these groups to be tested, screened and immunised for your health and care with Dashwood MC.
