Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic Erewash Practices have worked hard to ensure their surgeries are as safe as possible for patients and staff.
Despite the change in rules on 19th July, when patients visit their GP Surgery or any other NHS appointments (COVID-19 vaccination centre) we will continue to require them to:
Our staff members will continue to wear PPE.
This is to protect the most vulnerable members of our patient population and workforce, some of whom are unable to receive the COVID-19 vaccination due to medical reasons.
All Erewash practices have been seeing clinically necessary patients face to face throughout the pandemic and will continue to do so. Practices will also continue to utilise the use of telephone, online and video appointments which have proved very successful, providing a more accessible service for many patients, where appropriate. We will be continuing the same approach going forwards after 19th July. This reduces the risk of spreading coronavirus and/or any other illnesses in practice waiting rooms.
We would like to thank all of our patients for their ongoing support, and hope you all understand that we are taking these actions to ensure the safety of all of our patients and staff members.
