We're aware of the lifting of the remaining COVID-19 restrictions from 19th July 2021.
But we still need to act cautiously to stop the spread of the virus. The delta variant is more transmissible, and people visiting this practice may be contagious without knowing it.
Many people are still not yet fully vaccinated, so cutting the virus transmission is still important.
Health premises are a higher risk environment and we need to maintain some control measures to keep everyone safe.
So we are asking everyone visiting our practice to:
Please continue to attend your appointments. We have excellent infection control procedures along with a robust triaging policy to ensure the safety of both patients and staff.
If you are worried about your attendance please contact us to discuss your concerns and we can always postpone your treatment till a later date
We will continue to check your temperature and if this is above 37.8C, you will be advised to rebook your treatment and to follow government guidelines. Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes early for an appointment.
As you enter the building you will need to use the alcohol disinfectant rub to disinfectant your hands.
The treatment rooms will be prepared prior to your appointment with all surfaces disinfected after each patient. We have sourced PPE and unlike the start of the Pandemic (March 2020 in the UK), there is no shortage.
Please do not be concerned as we continue to maintain high standards of cross infection control. Stay safe and please contact us if you have any questions.
Everyone at Gordon Road Dental Care.
