You may have recently seen in the media that GP’s are to now offer more F2F appointments. We at Ambrose Avenue Group Practice would like to assure our patients that we have always been, and will continue to offer face to face appointments for patients where required. Due to the nature of the pandemic, we have had to limit the access to the practice in order to make the building ‘covid secure’. A waiting room that could previously hold 15-20 patients can now hold 7 if they are to socially distance properly. We also have a duty of care to protect not only our staff, but the patients who may be more vulnerable to the consequences of catching Covid-19. We are aware that although restrictions are easing in England as from today, there are still increases in infection rates in certain strains of the virus.
We are open and here for you. We are continuing to provide services as we have been doing throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Face-to-face appointments are available to all patients where there is a clinical need. You will be asked to first discuss your conditions over the phone with a member of the clinical team to assess what would be most appropriate for you and which practice member would best provide it.
If you are asked to come into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering. Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery
