Urgent update : Tideswell and Bakewell Surgery Monday 16th November

 

We are sad to announce we have a staff member who has tested positive for Covid -19.

We have ensured all staff contacts have gone for testing and will isolate for the correct timeframes, currently 25 staff members are awaiting results.  

We are taking advice from Public Health England. 

 

All patient contacts were undertaken with the correct protective equipment and therefore there is no risk to patients.

 

Although both Surgeries remain open at present, some appointments will unfortunately need to be rearranged. We are trying our hardest to continue where we can. We will contact you by phone or text if we need to re-arrange your appointment. 

 

Please accept our apologies if there is a longer wait for phone calls to be answered.

If you can contact us via engage consult or email that would help greatly as we have staff isolating that are able to work from home.  If possible only call us if it is urgent so we can direct help to where it is needed the most.

 

Thank you

The Peak & Dales Team
