COVID Restriction Update

COVID Restriction Update

Throughout the pandemic we have strived for St Thomas Medical Group to be as safe as possible for all our patients and staff. We will continue to do so going forward.

 

From the 19th July, nothing will change at the surgeries – patients will need to still wear a face covering and socially distance and staff will continue to wear PPE. The number of patients allowed into the waiting area will also continue to be restricted. We do understand that this can be frustrating but we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions to protect us all.

Covid has not gone away.

We have come so far in trying to minimise the impact of Covid and we are sure you understand the need to keep the surgery as safe as possible for ALL patients and staff. One positive case of covid within the surgery could stop our entire workforce for 10 days, and I’m sure you will agree, maintaining restrictions is a small price to pay so that we may continue with a full range of services and keep our doors open.

Many Thanks

St Thomas Medical Group

Our Next Staff Training Day

In order to give you the highest level of Care we undertake regular staff training days, when we review our systems, procedures and practices.

It is very important that both Clinical and Administrative staff get the opportunity to update their skills and knowledge.

Our next training day is Tuesday 12 October 2021. On the day we will close at 11:00hrs and reopen at 14:00hrs.

Please call 999 for any emergencies or 111 for triage.  If you call the surgery while we are closed you will be directed to Devon Doctors.
