Latest covid19 infection control advice

Whilst the wearing of masks is no longer mandatory in other settings, Dr Singh & Dr Joseph have instructed our staff to continue to wear these in face to face consultations to protect patients. We would be grateful if patients would do likewise. Our services will therefore continue to follow this broad model:

  • We would ask all patients visiting the surgery building to continue to wear a mask until further notice
  • The doctors will continue to speak with patients in the first instance on the telephone and will call patients in the same day if they want to see the patient face to face. This mirrors what we have done throughout the pandemic.
  • Nurse appointments for the monitoring of chronic conditions like diabetes will be a mix of face to face and telephone appointments based on the nurse’s clinical assessment of each individual
  • Video consultations will continue to be used where practical

The mix of face to face & telephone calls is changing and the GP Partners will continue to regularly assess the latest NHS advice for safe care. A further update from the NHS is expected in March/April.

Thank you for your patience & understanding.
