Message from the SLMP Partners 15th October 2021
Thank you for your patience over the past 18 months whilst we have been dealing with an unprecedented worldwide medical pandemic.
Our staff continue their outstanding work organising covid and seasonal flu vaccinations for all eligible patients, whilst still running the practice on a day to day basis.
Please be assured that if you need to see a clinician face to face we will arrange this. As a Practice we have been continually disappointed with the unrelenting negativity and abuse being unfairly directed at General Practice by the media. We have and continue to offer a selection of appointments, including face to face, telephone and video consultation. When contacting the Practice you will be offered a choice of appointment type to best suit your needs.
Please be aware that we continue to recommend face mask wearing whilst in the practice building, and that you will still be asked on entering the building about possible coronavirus symptoms.
It is also very important that ALL those with any of the symptoms of covid- a new cough, a fever OR loss of sense of taste or smell- have a PCR test for covid. This can be organised through the government website or by ringing 119.
A lateral flow test is not sufficient if you have symptoms.
All household contacts should still isolate until results are available.
