How Staffa Health is currently operating

All GP surgery’s were advised in 2020 to move towards a telephone based service and to reduce face to face contact in a bid to slow the spread of coronavirus in the community.

The surgeries are therefore currently closed to walk in patients.

All patients requiring an appointment should call the surgery. You will be booked an initial appointment that will be conducted over the telephone. If after your telephone consultation you need to be seen this will bre arranged for you.

More information about how we are operating can be found in the updates below.

Coronavirus update – 19th July 2021

Despite lockdown restrictions lifting in the community from 19 July, measures will remain unchanged in healthcare settings, including your GP practice. Please continue to help us to help you by wearing a face covering when entering our buildings, washing your hands using the facilities provided and maintaining social distancing.

Restrictions remain and inside all our premises and you still need to wear a mask, wash your hands and follow social distancing. Our practice has put in place comprehensive measures for staff and patients for the wearing of face masks and face coverings whilst at our surgery. All patients and visitors should continue to wear a face covering on entrance to our buildings and throughout the duration of their visit.

The face coverings can be a scarf, homemade face mask or one that has been purchased. The measures continue to be an important part, alongside social distancing, of reducing the spread of Covid-19 and to keep our patients and communities safe.

We do understand that it can be frustrating, but we do know that when patients come to see us they are often sick and vulnerable, so we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions that can protect people.
