From 19th July we will see the removal of almost all of the covid-19 restrictions. We have discussed patient and staff safety and our infection control measures in practice and taking into account the continued increase in covid cases Rydings Hall Surgery will retain, for some time yet, the infection prevention and control measures that have been in place since the start of the covid pandemic. This does have an impact on service delivery due to the additional time required for this. It is the right thing to continue to work in this way.
Our first line appointment model will continue to be a telephone/video consultation, on the day with some pre-bookable, with an appropriate clinician. The clinician will determine and advise the patient if a further face to face appointment is required. Please do not attend the practice if you have covid symptoms, are awaiting the results of a covid test or have been in close contact with someone who is covid positive.
The clinicians and staff at the practice will continue to keep you safe by wearing the appropriate PPE for the foreseeable.
We ask that all patients over the age of 12 attending the practice for information or an appointment wear a mask whilst in the surgery.
Thank you for your continued support during these challenging times.
