Covid Restriction Update - July 19th
Since March 2020 we have made every attempt to make the Unit as safe as possible for patients and staff. This is something that we remain fully committed to.
From 19th July, nothing will change at the Unit. Staff will continue to wear PPE and patients will be required to wear a mask to enter the building. Continuing to wear masks protects everyone who comes to the Unit, especially the young, elderly and vulnerable.
We have been seeing patients face to face all through the pandemic. Everything starts with a phone call and if a face to face appointment is clinically required then this is arranged by the clinician usually on the same day.
In March 2021; 3616 patients had an appointment, in April 2021 that figure was 3406 and in May 2021; 3846.
In June 2021; 3399 patients had an appointment at the Unit, 774 of those patients had bloods taken. Other appointments included covid vaccinations, children and babies immunisations, dressing of wounds, cervical smears, INR testing, chronic disease reviews and treatment of minor injuries.
