We have been busy getting ready to open under the new guidelines and regulations behind the scenes. Our clinical staff now have high-grade respirator masks that have been individually fit-tested and certified as safe. We also have a unique fan system in each surgery that clears the air within less than 10 minutes.
As a result of these measures (and many more)
we will be open for most treatments from 09:00 on Monday 6th July
We believe we will operate regular (published) opening hours from Tuesday 7th onwards. Please note that we have a backlog of work that needs priority attention, which we will work through over the first couple weeks. Our priority groups are listed in the previous blog.
Our protective measures allow us to start offering hygiene appointments but these, and other routine appointments, are likely to be delayed until the end of the month. Please note, though, that we are unlikely to be able to offer ‘joint’ appointments (where you can have your check-up and hygiene in succession).
We are still required to pre-screen all patients and to ensure social distancing within the non-clinical areas of the practice, so it is not ‘business as usual for the moment.
So, I refer to the previous blog and confirm that any previously booked appointments are currently void.
All appointments under the new guidelines need to be booked and confirmed by telephone, and no one can be seen without a response to the pre-screening questions. Thank you for your patience and co-operation with this.
Our opening in July can be regarded as a ‘beta test’ for the procedures. The whole system is so alien to us that we are sure it will need adaption and modification over the first few weeks.
Furthermore, as the risk status changes (for better or worse), other changes may be imposed or conditions relaxed.
For the moment, it’s good news for all, though, and we look forward to seeing you again, even if we are peering at you from behind our PPE!
If you want to arrange a non-urgent appointment, we kindly request that you call later in the week as we anticipate Monday the 6th will be a hectic day.
