COVID Restriction Update – 19 July changes

Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make MKGP premises and healthcare settings as safe as possible for all our patients and staff. We will continue to do so going forward.

As you know we have never stopped delivering care to our patients. Indeed we have consulted in higher numbers than we did pre-COVID (face to face, by telephone, by video consultation and via online consultations . And of course we have helped to vaccinate 86% of the adult population twice in the last 6 months

MKGP 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 patients as we can.

Therefore from the 19th July nothing will change at the surgery – patients will still be asked to wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the surgery and staff will continue to wear PPE. We will continue to use remote consultation tools where appropriate while continuing to see patients face to face where it is of clinical benefit to the patient.

We do understand that restrictions can feel 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.

Thank you for your support.
