Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make the surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff. We will continue going forward.
From 19th July nothing will change at the surgery – patients need to wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the surgery and staff will continue to wear PPE. We do understand that it can be frustrating but we know that when people come to us they are sick and vulnerable (some cannot receive the Covid vaccinations due to medical reasons) so we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions to protect everyone.
In terms of opening up, we have never been shut and in fact have consulted with much higher numbers of patients than we did pre-Covid (face to face, by phone, online and by video), not counting vaccinating 90% of the adult population twice in the last 6 months.
Trent Meadows Appointment count:
Last 4 weeks = 3,644 Appointments
Last 8 weeks = 7,412 Appointments
Last 13 weeks = 13,031 Appointments
Last 26 weeks = 25,067 Appointments
Trent Meadows Covid Vaccinations = 1st vaccine 7,380 patients / 2nd vaccine 5,752
The East Staffordshire community has come 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 patient as we can. Stay safe and fingers crossed for the football!
