As of Monday 16th August, Government guidance is that people who are double jabbed or aged under 18 will no longer be legally required to self-isolate if they are identified as a close contact of a positive Covid-19 case.
NHS England guidance to General Practice goes a step further and advises that if a member of staff is living directly (same household) with a positive Covid-19 case, they will be asked not to come to work.
Unfortunately, Saltash Health Centre is currently in a situation where the GPs and staff at Saltash Health Centre are experiencing a spike in positive household contacts. Therefore, we are operating with reduced availability of GP appointments, as well as reduced clinical and admin staff.
If your query can wait, this will help us prioritise availability for patients with more urgent problems.
Thank you for your understanding
