A number of non-clinical staff at Hilary Cottage Surgery have tested positive for Covid-19 and are isolating at home, along with their close contacts.
The surgery is open as normal and if you have a pre-booked appointment or need to collect your medication from Dispensary it is safe for you to attend the surgery. We have been advised that the correct infection control and PPE measures have been followed, and the risk to patients attending the surgery is low. If you do wish to cancel or re-arrange your appointment you can do so if you wish.
The surgery is taking each day at a time – it may take a little longer for us to answer telephone calls, and we may need to close a little earlier than normal due to staffing constraints, so please bear with us as we try to maintain the best service we can for our patients.
Thank you all for your co-operation and understanding at this exceptionally challenging time.
We would like to remind patients that if you develop symptoms of COVID-19, you should self-isolate and check the advice at www.nhs.uk
