CORONAVIRUS UPDATE (25/03/2020)
CLOSURE OF HAMILTON ROAD DENTAL PRACTICE
We have now been instructed by the Scottish Government to close our doors to all patients.
Our phone line will remain open to deal with your dental emergencies and give advice. Phone Line Opening hours to 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday for emergency arrangements and advice.
Please phone 01698 263099 if you are having a dental emergency, we will be here for you.
The Scottish Government is clear that the NHS is on an ‘emergency footing’ during the current COVID-19 outbreak and that providing routine dentistry ‘as normal’ is no longer sustainable.
As a result of this, taking effect from 24/03/2020:
We are also aware of the impact that COVID-19 will have on our practice and our staff. Any member of staff who develops symptoms will be directed to stay at home for 7 days from the onset of symptoms as per existing advice. In addition, it is now recommended that anyone living in the same household as a symptomatic person should self-isolate for 14 days.
Maintaining dental services
• Delivery of urgent dental care to all patients WITH OR WITHOUT symptoms of COVID-19 at designated urgent dental care treatment centres. CALL THE PRACTICE FIRST, then handling by NHS24 and appointments arranged by NHS Lanarkshire
• Cessation of all routine dental care to all patients, our practice phone line will be open for dental emergency (pain, swelling, trauma and fractures) advice and organisation of appropriate treatment. We will undertake offer advice and/or appropriate treatment options with the Emergency Dental Service.
The safety of our patients, dentists and staff members is paramount. Therefore, as practice we will be moving to a skeleton staff to minimise exposure for our staff and to our patients.
Shane, John, Kaye, Stuart, Lucy, and Josh wish you well and will all be available to offer emergency advice and direct patients to the appropriate treatment. (kaye – when she returns from Maternity Leave)
We hope to return to normal as soon as it is safe to do so.
Please follow social distancing advice and stay safe.
