Please see below regarding steps we are taking are asking our patients to take in light of the Coronavirus outbreak:
Your Health and Safety are our priority:
We are incorporating the following into our routine
Being extra careful with our hand hygiene and personal protective equipment
Reducing the number of staff in direct contact with you
Asking our staff to take sick leave even for a common cold
We would appreciate it if you could assist us by
Minimising the number of people attending the appointment e.g additional siblings or friends or anyone not required in the surgery area
Reducing any unnecessary appointments
Rescheduling an appointment when you are UNWELL even if it is just a cold. We will take this into consideration and provide the soonest available appointment once you are well again.
If you have travelled abroad in the last 14 days or been in close contact with someone with confirmed coronavirus please check the gov.uk website for the latest COVID-19 travel advice. You may need to call NHS 111 for further advice before making or attending your appointment.
As a team, we commit to standardise all infection control and personal protective protocols and to avoid cross contamination of any virus, to us and our patients.
Please let us know if you or a family member has travelled abroad in the last 3 weeks.
If you have any family members who are self-isolating, please can we also ask you to call the practice to rearrange your appointment

"The children were captivated throughout, which is not easy thing at this stage in Year 6. Both hygienists were great with the children and the Powerpoint, demonstration things and goody bags were fab. The children said that they really enjoyed it as well – thank you."
