Throughout the pandemic we have strived to keep the surgery open and make the surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff. With your help we will continue to do so going forward.
From the 19th July nothing will change at the surgery – patients will need to still wear a mask, have their temperature taken, socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the surgery and staff will continue to wear PPE.
We do understand that it can be frustrating (we are frustrated too) 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.
In terms of opening up, as many of you know, 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 and by video). Please continue to contact the surgery via the telephone we ask that you do not attend in person as we will not be able to make you an appointment at the door.
The Biggleswade Community 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. Now that the infection rates are sadly rising again.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
