Practice Update 20/08/2020
Following the lockdown we are now working to our 'new normal'. Patients in active treatment are now having regular checks, though they may be slightly less frequent. We can see reviews and new patients and start treatment, with a waiting time of about 4 weeks. We are offering virtual consultations for new patients, reviews and retainer checks where appropriate, these limit the number of people visiting the surgery and can be followed by a face-to-face visit where needed. Please note that clinic hours may not be the same as pre-lockdown and may alter in the future.
Important information regarding Covid Safety
We have made the decision not to alter treatment fees until at least March 2021. However, we are currently incurring additional costs due to the safety procedures we have to put in place to prevent transmission of coronavirus. These include additional PPE for clinicians and practice staff, masks and hand sanitation for patients and accompanying persons, extra cleaning and waste disposal, and additional appointment time to reduce the number of people at the practice. The practice cannot support the additional costs so at present there is an additional safety surcharge of £5.80 per visit. For a few procedures that involve aerosol generation (air and water spray) the charge is £39.95, you will be advised in advance if this is needed. These fees go solely towards the costs incurred for Covid safety and are constantly under review. There may be changes in the future if there are alterations in the cost of PPE, our standard operating procedure or the Covid alert level. For patients about to start treatment I will include the safety surcharge in the assessment fee and the first visit where braces are fitted. Subsequently the safety fee will be payable at each visit.
Thank you for your understanding, which means we are able to stay open and keep everyone as safe as possible.
