Welcome to College Street Medical Practice
The pandemic is not over for the NHS (Oct 2021)
We are delighted that so many of you are now able to return to a more normal existence, seeing friends and families, re-joining classes and groups and going on holiday and we would like to support all of you in doing this.
We are also pleased that so many of our patients have taken the opportunity to have their Covid vaccination, and as we move into booster programme we hope the uptake continues. However, there are still patients in our local hospital with Covid and many more in the area with Covid symptoms. The vaccinations does not work for some immunocompromised individuals, only providing 70% coverage against Covid and many people are still unvaccinated.
We still must protect our vulnerable patients from cross contamination from other patients.
This means that for us the effects of the pandemic go on:
- We still have to clean our clinical rooms in-between patients who attend the Practice, with the waiting rooms and other areas cleaned twice a day.
- We still have to put on clean personal protective equipment ( PPE) for each patient we see.
- We still have to have a dedicated isolation room at each site where we can see patients who are at high risk without any risk to other patients
- We still have to clean a room with special chlorine decontamination liquid if we see a patient who may have Covid.
- We still have to keep our Practice staff safe in order for them to see those patients who are medical unwell and avoid putting other patients at risk
- From time to time, we have staff sickness. The Practice staff are only human and are at the same at risk of having Covid like our patients.
For these reasons we still have to limit the numbers of face to face consultations we can safely offer. The only way of doing this fairly is for the Doctors to triage the call and then bring in only those patients who need to be seen face to face. We review this on a regular basis and will adapt further when it is safe to do so.
Like many things who knows what the ‘new normal’ will be but for the time being we are doing as much as possible within the Practice to keep our patients and staff safe.
Thank you for your co-operation in what has been a difficult time.
