Patient Notice: Friday 4th February 2022

We would like to inform our patients that we currently have clinical staff off sick that have tested positive for Covid. Unfortunately, even though we take every precaution in the surgery, we are not immune from contracting Covid. So far we have been really fortunate in the low numbers that have been off sick with it, but I do know of some surgeries that have had to close their doors due to surges in staff contracting Covid. This is something which Thorpe Surgery does not want to happen. With this is mind can I remind all patients to wear a face mask or shield and use hand sanitiser when coming into the surgery. We must continue to protect patients and staff that are vulnerable. We are continuing to work as normal as possible, however, this is having an impact on our daily triage list.

All our staff are working under immense pressure to keep the service running with limited resources. Please be polite to all our staff when you come into the surgery or on the telephone.

I would like to thank you all for being patient.
