Firstly, we would like to thank you for all your support over the past 18 months.
As you are aware the government have relaxed the Social Distancing rules further from 19th July 21. However, as things stand if any of our staff come in contact with a COVID positive client in our surgery they would have to self-isolate for 10 days. This will add pressure to the service that we provide and reduce our availability of appointments we can offer, or even worse, having to close one of our surgeries.
Therefore, we have made the decision to continue as we are. We will be open 7 days a week, and practice social distancing providing care for our patients.
We will be monitoring the situation regularly and should the regulations change or number of the COVID cases starts decreasing we will immediately change our policy.
Thank you for your understanding.
Your Blackwater Valley team
