COVID-19 PANDEMIC – WEARING OF FACE COVERING
In accordance with the law and with the aim of protecting both our patients and staff during the current pandemic, before entering the surgery at Love Lane and Berrow Health Campus, you must wear a face covering.
A face covering is something which safely covers the nose and mouth.
You can buy reusable or single-use face coverings.
You may also use a scarf, bandana, religious garment or hand-made cloth covering but these must securely fit round the side of the face.
Face coverings are largely intended to protect others, not the wearer, against the spread of infection because they cover the nose and mouth, which are the main confirmed sources of transmission of virus that causes coronavirus infection (COVID-19).
We are mindful and respectful of those who cannot put on, wear or remove a face covering because of a physical or mental illness or impairment, or disability and that some people are less able to wear face coverings, the reasons for this may not be visible to others.
If you are unable to wear a face covering, please do not enter either building.
Instead, please to speak to our Reception Team via the intercom outside the front door who will discuss how we can help you.
If you are attending either surgery for a booked appointment, you will be asked to return to your car (or wait outside if you are on foot). The consulting Clinician will come out to speak with you and discuss how we can help you.
Thank you for your understanding.
Dr. Stephen Miell and Dr. David Boorman
Whilst we’ve received information that all 50-64 year olds may be eligible for a free flu vaccination as part of plans to protect more people against seasonal flu, these free vaccinations will be subject to delivery later in the year. This allows us to focus on those who are in an at risk group, such as pregnant women and people with long term health conditions. They will be given priority and offered the vaccine first; if you are in this category you will be contacted.
If you are aged 50-64 and not in one of the at risk categories you will told in the coming months if you will be able to attend for vaccination. If the programme is extended this is likely to be November or December.
Of course if you wish to access a vaccine prior to this date you can pay to have this at your local pharmacy as in previous years, otherwise please wait for more information.
