Clift Surgery and COVID19 July 2020
Clift Surgery is now a centre where suspected COVID patients will be seen, and precautions are in place to protect patients and staff.
The surgery is now divided into 2 sections.
- The REDarea is where suspected COVID patients will be seen, initially in the car park in designated bays at the back of the surgery and, if necessary, in one of 2 dedicated examination rooms. Appointments are likely to be made at the end of the day. The red zone doctor on duty will not enter the green zone.
- The GREENarea is being kept separate to ensure the safety of anyone having to attend the surgery for non COVID related issues.
Rest assured that strict infection controls are in place. Patients suspected of COVID will be initially triaged and will usually be attended to in the staff car park.
Further updates will be given as required. It is likely that arrangements will have to change when winter flu starts and if a winter surge in COVID comes.
If you are unwell, please ring the surgery as normal, where instructions are given on how to proceed before you speak to a receptionist.
