Throughout the pandemic our five GP practices – Altrincham Medical Practice, Park Medical Practice, Shay Lane Medical Centre (Drs Kelman, Cranston, Naylor, Haslam, Connell and Pathak), St Johns Medical Centre and West Timperley Medical Centre – have strived to remain as safe as possible. This will continue as the protection of patients and staff is our priority.
From 19th July nothing will change at our practices – patients will need to still wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser, and our staff will continue to wear PPE. Those visiting us are sick and vulnerable (and some cannot receive the Covid vaccinations due to medical reasons) so we feel we should take these small precautions to protect people.
In terms of opening up, as many of you know, practices have continued to treat patients throughout the pandemic – 50% more patients than we did pre-Covid (face to face, by phone, via online consultations and video).
Altrincham Healthcare Alliance PCN is committed to minimising the impact of Covid and continues to deliver the Covid vaccination service to its patients. We hope all visitors understand that our practices must be as safe as possible for all patients and staff.
