Covid Restriction Update: From the 19 July 2021 nothing will change at the surgery
Covid Restriction Update:
Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make the surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff.
From the 19 July nothing will change at the surgery – patients will need to still wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the surgery and staff will continue to wear PPE.
We do understand that it can be frustrating but we know that when people come to us they are sick and vulnerable (and some cannot receive the covid vaccinations due to medical reasons) so we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions that can protect people.
In terms of opening up, as many of you know, we have never been shut and in fact have consulted with much higher numbers of patients than we did pre-covid (face to face, by phone, by e-consult and by video), not counting our efforts to vaccinate the adult population twice in the last 6 months. 💉 Our operational arrangements will remain the same for some time.
The Dulwich community has come so far in trying to minimise the impact of Covid and we are sure you understand that we need to keep the surgery as safe for ALL patients as we can.
From 1 August 2021 we will consider opening our patient side entrance with a one way system with patients exiting through the front door. However we will be only be expecting patients coming to the surgery with pre-booked appointments and essential requests which can not be dealt with online.
Help us to continue to help you when visiting the surgery by wearing a mask, using hand sanitiser and keeping a safe social distance from other patients and staff.
