We have now cancelled all scheduled examination/hygienist appointments for the rest of September. You should have received a text or letter to inform you of this.
We are emerging out of the lockdown for dentistry and continuing to see most of you with problems within a day or so. My thanks again for your co-operation in making this possible.
We have also now managed to secure some enhanced PPE which is allowing us to undertake a limited number of 'Aerosol Generating Procedures' (AGPs) for urgent care so we can see you in the practice within familiar surroundings.
As I have explained before, this also means that we have to leave the surgery empty, possibly for an hour or more, after the appointment therefore meaning we are limited to the numbers of patients we are be able to see.
As before, PLEASE DO NOT JUST TURN UP FOR AN APPOINTMENT AS THE DOOR WILL BE LOCKED. YOU MUST PHONE IN ADVANCE TO BE TRIAGED.
Please continue to bear with us. Remember, all the measures we have put in place are to help you receive your care as safely and quickly as possible. Contact us on 0141-889 2016 and, as always, we are ready to help.
Meantime, we have all made sacrifices over the last several months. For us to wear these tight fitting masks needed for AGPs we have had to make our own including shaving....judge for yourself......but Ian went well overboard!
