Caring for you during COVID-19 (update July 2021)
To all of our practice patients and visitors,
We’re aware of the lifting of the remaining COVID-19 restrictions from 19 July 2021. BUT, as a healthcare premises, we must act cautiously to stop the spread of the virus. The delta variant is more transmissible and people visiting the practice may be contagious without knowing it. Many people are still not yet fully vaccinated, so cutting virus transmission is still vital. Health premises are a higher risk environment and we need to maintain some control measures to keep everyone safe. So, we will continue to ask everyone visiting our practice to;
Fill out electronic forms in advance | Wear a face mask | Sanitise your hands on entry | Social distance
This means we will still ask you in advance to confirm whether you have any symptoms of COVID-19. If so, we will reschedule your appointment until you have finished isolating or got the results of your PCR test. We will still ask you to wear a mask when you enter the Practice and to sanitise your hands.
We continue to prioritise children for check ups and adults who have urgent needs. However, I’m delighted that many of our Dentists are now able to offer some routine appointments for adults who are active patients at the practice. I’m sad to say that we currently do not have capacity to take on new NHS patients and we are operating a waiting list for private patients. We are working hard to be in a position to take on new NHS patients in Autumn.
Please do not come to the practice without an appointment. We continue to operate a closed door policy so that we only admit people into the building that we have screened for symptoms of COVID-19. To book appointments or speak to us about any matter, you must telephone. Our lines are very busy, particularly between the hours of 9am – 11am, so avoid these times if you can. If you do not get through, please leave a voice message. Alternatively, email firstname.lastname@example.org
We really appreciate your patience. Our capacity to see you face to face is still much reduced (as of the end of June, we were operating at about 65%). We share your frustrations but equally, we know we have a responsibility to keep you and our colleagues safe.
Information on attending a pre-arranged appointment
Form filling – it is vital that you complete your forms (COVID screening, medical history, NHS form (unless you are a Practice Plan patient) and personal details) IN ADVANCE. Please give us your email address so that you can complete them from the comfort of your own home. If you can’t do this, then a member of our Reception team can do it over the phone, but it does take up a lot of precious time. Also, for NHS patients, we can complete the form on your behalf, but you must be absolutely certain of your exemption from having to pay NHS charges. Although we are signing on your behalf you will still be liable for any fines that are imposed by the NHS for incorrectly claiming of exemption. So if you can, please please do those forms electronically!
Waiting room – to make sure we keep everyone safe, the number of spaces in the waiting room is much reduced. Therefore, try not to arrive more than 5 minutes early for your appointment. Be prepared to wait outside the practice if the waiting room is busy.
Attend on your own – you need to attend your appointment on your own, unless you have made arrangements with us in advance.
Other precautions – upon entry, we will ask you to wear a mask and sanitise your hands. We will screen you for COVID 19. If you have any symptoms of COVID 19, you must not come to the practice, but let us know as soon as you are able.
PPE & infection control – for some dental treatments we now need to wear a higher level of PPE. Please don’t be alarmed, it is still us underneath the masks and gowns. Each surgery and common area undergoes a thorough clean between patients.
Dental charges – if there are charges to be paid we will ask that you pay over using a contactless card (less than £45). Our ability to take cash and give change is still greatly reduced as it is a key way of transmitting the virus.
With my very best wishes
