Essentially nothing has changed in terms of our policies and procedures that have been in place for the last 18 months. (all existing parts of the practice patient journey still apply)
There is some updated guidance regarding how patients are triaged for their appointment and are now assigned to a respiratory virus or non respiratory virus treatment pathway.
Symptoms of the new variant include blocked / runny nose, scratchy / sore throat, dry cough, muscle ache and fatigue. Any patients with these symptoms (and / or existing COVID-19 symptoms) will be asked to reschedule their appointment.
We rely on your honesty to keep us all safe.
