Patient Update on NHS Services Across Wirral We are closed Monday 19th September Farewell to Dr Das and Dr Wyche Brighter Birkenhead PCN Health Fayre COVID Vaccination Clinics Thursday 10th and Friday 11th February COVID Vaccination Clinic today, Appointments available! Wirral residents invited to NHS Wirral CCG’s Annual General Meeting Wirral CCG Press Release (16th July 2021) – Face Coverings in Healthcare Settings Covid Restriction Update Data Sharing
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 nothing will change at the surgery – patients and visitors will need to still wear a face covering and socially distance and staff will continue to wear PPE during consultations and in all public areas. The number of patients allowed into the waiting area will also continue to be restricted. You will still need to use the intercom at the front door.
We do understand that it can be frustrating but we know that when people come to us they are sick and vulnerable so we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions that can protect people. Covid has not gone away.
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 the majority of our adult patients twice in the last 6 months.
We have 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 as possible for ALL patients and staff. One positive case of covid within the surgery could wipe out our entire workforce for 10 days and I’m sure you will agree, maintaining restrictions is a small price to pay in order that we continue with a full range of medical services, and indeed keep our doors open.
We thank you all for your co-operation during this time
