With COVID-19 cases increasing, it is important to continue to remain vigilant about infection control in our surgery.
While restrictions in the community are being relaxed, this is not the case in healthcare settings where we treat increasing numbers of vulnerable people on a daily basis. We know that relaxation in the community is one factor in the increase in cases alongside the impact of the Delta variant. We also know that hospitalisation of the young and unvaccinated population is on the increase and that long-term conditions resulting from contracting COVID-19 may be serious.
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement about the relaxing of many COVID-19 restrictions in England on 19th July 2021. We have been advised by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) that we ask our patients to continue to wear face coverings whilst attending the surgery for any reason.
With this advice we are asking that everyone continues to wear a face covering when attending the surgery. We will continue to maintain social distancing where possible.
