Coronavirus Information Update 13th December 21

At Captain French surgery we are proud to have remained open throughout the pandemic despite the exceptionally challenging times.  We had to implement some significant changes in order to keep all of our patients and staff safe.  We thank all of our patients for working with us and understanding the need to make these changes.

Please continue to wear a face covering when attending the surgery and ensure that you are maintaining social distancing at all times.  If you have any Covid symptoms, do not attend the surgery and instead book a Covid test and contact us by telephone if needed. Get a free PCR test to check if you have coronavirus (COVID-19) – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

Unless you hear from us, your nurse or GP appointment is continuing as planned. We understand that NHS England will be releasing more guidance soon, but in the meantime we are continuing with our usual appointments.
