19 July 2021 - Update on ease of restrictions

We thought it would be helpful to clarify the position about attending GP practices post 19 July when all restrictions are expected to ease.

The government announced that legal restrictions requiring the public to wear face coverings indoors will be eased from 19 July along with rules concerning social distancing and the number of people you can meet indoors.

Health and care leaders say while restrictions are being eased in some public places, strict infection control measures need to be followed in healthcare settings.

This will reduce the risk of vulnerable people from becoming infected and help prevent Covid-19 outbreaks that could result in the temporary closure of a surgery.

As such patients and visitors to GP practices across Suffolk and north east Essex will be required to wear face coverings. Any patient who fails to observe these protocols will be asked to do so.

Treating all patients, especially those who are clinically extremely vulnerable, in a clinically safe environment is our top priority and we will do everything we can to ensure this happens.

It will remain a legal requirement for people to self-isolate if they test positive or are told to do so by NHS Test and Trace. Please therefore stay away from the practice if you do test positive for Covid.


Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We are still asking for patients not to come to the surgery, but to call first.

Only come to the surgery if you have been asked to by a member of the Surgery team

If you are asked to attend the surgery, you MUST wear a face covering.

All appointments are currently being dealt with via the telephone.

Please do not put prescription requests in early as they will only be processed when they are due.

If you have a routine query of any kind or need a test result and have internet access, please go to our website and use the eConsult system to contact us.

If you have loss of taste or smell, a temperature or a new continuous cough please self-isolate and follow the latest Government advice on self-isolation and test and trace from the links below.

If your symptoms are serious, or get worse NHS 111 has an online Coronavirus service that can give advice. Only call NHS 111 direct if you are unable to use online service.
