Polite Notice to all Covid Positive Patients

We have been made aware that Thorpe/Kirby patients have been attending Clacton Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) knowing that they are Covid Positive and should be in isolation, but still attended.  This is totally unfair to other patients and staff who are working tirelessly in the already pressured medical environment. The ramification of this is that the facility has to close immediately to deep clean which can take hours, and this is catastrophic to the daily running of the service.

If you know you are Covid Positive please read the Government Guidelines to keep everyone safe and stay home.

When to self-isolate and what to do – Coronavirus (COVID-19) – NHS (www.nhs.uk)

Thank you

Jayne Roe – Practice Manager
