CORONAVIRUS UPDATE
21.03.20

Given the unprecedented situation in the UK regarding the COVID-19 virus we are now operating a:

Emergency Only Service to patients who are showing NO SIGNS of COVID-19

SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19:

  • high temperaturethis means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

If you are showing any signs of COVID-19 Do Not Come To The Surgery.

Our priority is urgent care to our patients while protecting the safety of our staff.

By providing an emergency service we are actively helping our NHS colleagues by keeping dental patients away from NHS 111, GP Practices and Hospitals whose priority is now COVID-19.

EMERGENCY APPOINTMENTS ARE:

FACIAL SWELLING

PAIN THAT IS KEEPING YOU AWAKE AT NIGHT

PAIN AFFECTING YOUR ABILITY TO FUNCTION

As a team, we are doing everything we possibly can to remain fit, well and able to work so that we can continue to provide this service. We do however have a limited amount of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

Thank you for your support in keeping everyone safe.

CORONAVIRUS
15.03.20

Given the unprecedented situation in the UK regarding the COVID-19 virus I felt it was important to reassure all patients that we are continuing to keep our practice clean and safe for both you and our team.

You will appreciate that as a dental practice we work in an environment where the prevention of the spread of a whole range of infections is woven into everything that we do.

Nevertheless, we are paying particular attention to the latest government guidance on the transmission of coronavirus.

Know the guidance Before attending the practice for your next appointment

we would be grateful if you would review the most up to date government guidance – via this link https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response

Please remember to call us on 01384 252387or email us on enquires@puritydental.co.uk to let us know if you wish to reschedule any of your booked appointments.

We would be happy to schedule an alternative date for you.

At your next appointment Please use the hand sanitiser just inside the main doorway on the left on entering and leaving the building.

Please also use the hand sanitiser provided in each surgery when you have completed your treatment.

Forgive us if we don’t shake hands - but we are however happy to do the elbow bump - just ask! You’ll notice that we’ve removed some non-essential items in the reception. They will return once this is all over!

As a team, we are doing everything we possibly can to remain fit, well and able to work so that we can continue to provide our usual high standard of dental care for you.

Thank you for your support in keeping everyone safe.

With best wishes,

The Dental Team
