Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make the surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff. We will continue to do so going forward. From the 19th July public place restrictions have been lifted, but there are recommendations for hospitals and NHS settings - patients will need to still wear a mask, socially distance, and use hand sanitiser in the surgery and staff will continue to wear PPE. We do understand that it can be frustrating but we know that when people come to us they are sick and vulnerable (and some cannot receive the covid vaccinations due to medical reasons) so we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions that can protect people. In terms of opening up, as many of you know, we have never been shut and in fact have consulted with much higher numbers of patients than we did pre-covid (face to face, by phone, by e consult and by video), not counting vaccinating 90% of the adult population twice in the last 6 months. Fishergate Hill Surgery has come so far in trying to minimise the impact of Covid and we are sure you understand that we need to keep the surgery as safe for ALL staff and patients as we can.
