We would like to say a huge thank you to all our patients and their families during the Covid-19 pandemic. Your support of us and the NHS, and your understanding about the difficulties we have faced has been appreciated by everyone at … We are so grateful for all the positive messages we have had and the continuing support you have shown.
We appreciate that many routine problems have had to be put on hold during this time, and this can be very frustrating. Our hope is that as we move out of Lockdown we will be able to address these more readily. Unfortunately, routine referrals to the hospital and our community clinics are still not currently available. This is due to the risk these clinics would have in increasing potential for the spread of Covid-19. As soon as the hospital has found ways of re-establishing these safely we will update our patients via social media, our websites and via texts. To help keep yourself up to date please keep an eye on these channels and sign up for the sms text service via the GP practice.
At this time we ask that you don’t contact the practice to ask when routine referrals will be available as it diverts our staff and clinicians from helping patients with acute or worsening problems.
Thank you again for all your understanding and support during this difficult time.
