Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make St Johns Medical Centre as safe as possible and this will continue: protecting patients and staff is our priority.
From 19th July nothing will change at our practice – patients will need to still wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser, and our staff will continue to wear PPE. Those visiting us are sick and vulnerable (and some cannot receive the Covid vaccinations due to medical reasons) so we feel we should take these small precautions to protect people.
In terms of opening up, as many of you know, we have never been shut and we have treated 50% more patients than we did pre-Covid (face to face, by phone, via AskMyGP and video).
St Johns Medical Centre is committed to minimising the impact of Covid and we hope you understand that our practice must be as safe as possible for all patients and staff.
