"Why is the health centre not opening again, now that other places are re-opening?"
We have always been "open". We continue to work hard to keep our patients as safe as possible, along with our staff and our community by managing medical care remotely. This way of working has proved very successful and is reflected in the very low number of covid-related illnesses recorded in our area. .
Patient access to any Granta site continues to be by invitation, following a prior telephone assessment and only when the clinician assesses that the balance of risk and need justifies a face-to-face interaction. .
Essential care, such as NHS immunisations and mother and baby checks, continue to go ahead at selected sites. We carry out temperature checks on both staff and patients to minimise risk. Patients are asked to wear, and are provided with, masks when entering any of our buildings.
Our enhanced telephone service continues to be well received, as is our non-urgent dedicated email address, email@example.com. These services are currently available 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday.
The dispensing of repeat medications continues as usual, via our dedicated pharmacy and dispensary hatches / doors. /p>
