MHC COVID LEVEL 2 CHANGES

Monday 1st March 2021

MHC wants to maintain as SAFE an environment as possible for patients and staff alike, so any changes to our service delivery will be made with this in mind.

If you have any respiratory symptoms (runny nose, cold, cough, fever, aches, loss or smell) please phone us BEFORE coming to the practice.  We encourage phone consultations.  If, after the phone appointment, the doctor decides you need to be seen, they will make an in-person appointment for you.

To optimise social distancing and we are aiming to minimise the number of people in our waiting room.  With this in mind, we ask that patients try NOT to arrive too early for appointments and where attend on their own or with one support person only.  Please wear mask when entering the practice if you have one.

Due to GP retirement and maternity leave we are currently experiencing a longer wait time to see your GP than normal.    We do apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause. Many issues may able to be dealt with without seeing a GP in person so please don’t be offended if our reception team ask for the reason for your appointment.  For routine appointments e.g. Prescription Repeats, please ensure you book you routine appointments well in advance.

Stay safe

The MHC Team
