COVID-19 Surcharge

With lockdown easing from 19th July we feel it is important to update you on what you can expect when visiting our practice.

Our Covid Procedures will remain the same as at present.   The rules that apply to the General Public are not necessarily the same for the Dental/Healthcare Sector.

  • Face coverings will still be provided by us and will remain in force (unless exempt)

  • Hand hygiene facilities available at the entrance and exit of the surgery

  • Only the person receiving dental treatment should attend unless a carer or escort is required for example a child.

  • On arrival to the practice the doors will remain closed. Staff will still greet you, take temperature and complete covid questions

  • Space permitting you may be able to wait inside but if 2m is not possible you will be asked to remain outside.

We have reviewed our Covid Surcharge as we promised in light of some costs reducing, so with effect from 1st July  2021 the new fee will be £2.50 instead of £5 for Non-AGP and £12.50 instead of £15 (if 2 nurses are required then the price will be double) for an AGP procedure (Aerosol generating procedure). 

We will continue to monitor and review these costs. (The Covid surcharge is not just a charge for the face mask, but represents many aspects of ensuring everyone including all patients and the whole dental team work in a safe environment.  This includes regular cleaning, investment in screens, extraction fans, PPE and much more) 

Thank You’ for your understanding and co-operation.  We would ask that you are respectful to our Team who are there to protect your welfare as well as their own at all time and are always following NHS England Standard Operating Procedures.

 

The health and safety of you and the dental team are of the highest priority
