Covid-19

19th July 2021

What restrictions will look like at City Way Medical Practice after 19th July 2021

For the time being there will be no changes here at the practice. Patients coming to the surgery will still need to wear a mask, use the hand sanitiser and socially distance. Our staff will also continue to wear appropriate PPE.

We have made this decision as often patients coming to the surgery are sick, vulnerable and maybe unvaccinated due to medical reasons, so we feel that these precautions will help to protect everyone. We also need to minimise the number of our staff catching Covid so we can keep a functioning service, so for this reason alone these measures are vital.

Our consultations will continue, these might be offered as face to face, by phone or by video. All appointments will continue to be triaged by a Clinician and we will invite patients in for face to face consultations when clinically needed. It is worth noting that we are consulting with higher numbers of patients than we ever did before the pandemic. Our doors are still open but just in a different way.

Unfortunately we still cannot fully open the waiting room. There is not adequate ventilation. We do not have windows that open and we are not be able to leave the door open because we will not be able to control the number of patients who enter the building.

We hope you will understand why we need to continue with these measures and keep the surgery as safe for everyone as we can.

We have all come so far in trying to minimise the impact of Covid, let’s continue to stay safe together.
