The Government has eased COVID-19 public restrictions from 19th July 2021.
However, England's Chief Dental Officer has informed us that we should continue to implement our COVID-19 infection prevention and control measures until further notice. This is in line with the Government's guidance that states Health and care settings will continue to maintain appropriate infection prevention and control processes as necessary, this however will be continually reviewed. Guidance will be updated based on the latest clinical evidence in due course. We will continue to follow our existing COVID policies.
This unfortunately will continue to impact on the number of patients we are able to see in a working day and means that there is likely to be a longer wait for these appointments than we would like. We are continuing to experience high patient demand, so please be patient with us if we are unable to offer an appointment quickly.
We are working hard to provide care for our patients within the restrictions and guidance in a way that continues to ensure that we are all kept safe. We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding during these times.
