Welcome to Bridges Medical Practice
Covid Restrictions from 19th July
We are currently being told that from 19th of July all covid restrictions will be relaxed. However, our duty of care to staff and vulnerable patients will not be, and we will therefore be retaining a policy of mandatory face-coverings in the practice in order to minimise the risk of spreading covid (the day before writing this, 01 Jul 21, over 26,000 new covid cases were confirmed in the UK in 24 hours - the threat has not gone away). Vaccination offers excellent protection against covid hospitalising or killing you, but it does not prevent you catching or spreading it, though it reduces these risks - even once you have had two vaccinations, you are still potentially a risk to others.
We thank you for your cooperation with this, trusting in your common sense and understanding that by being cautious we will hopefully be able to continue routine work for all patients, including the elderly and vulnerable, and minimise the risk of unnecessary ICU admissions and deaths.
