19/07/2021 Important Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update at Eyes & Smiles Clinic
Dear Patient As England lockdown rules are set to end on Monday 19th of July 2021, the Practice would like to confirm its operational position going forward.
Public Health England's infection prevention control guidelines are set to remain in place. This means NHS visitor guidance will stay in place across all health services to ensure staff are protected.
Patients visiting a health service will also be expected to continue to follow social distancing rules as well as use a face covering, mask and other personal protection equipment.
The Practice will continue to operate a closed door policy until further notice. The Practice will continue to screen patients to establish their Covid-19 status and obtain a temperature at the point of attendance.
There are no clinical changes to the Practice and no update to the current Standard Operating Procedures.
The Team will continue to wear enhanced PPE and Air purification devices remain in operation.
The Practice would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and continued support during what has been a difficult past 16 months for us all.
