This strain of Covid is more deadly than the previous strains, numbers are still high and very precarious.
The vaccine is going to help but in the mean time we can’t loose sight of what we need to do.
As a regulated healthcare professional able to operate to safe standards in a safe environment, I am not required to close for medical treatments, however, I do have a duty to play my part in protecting public health and so would encourage all my patients who feel they can wait to trust me to do my very best to accommodate everyone once this lockdown lifts.
In the meantime, I do recognise that for some, the treatments I provide are seen as very important for psychological well-being and for those who are anxious about their treatment plans, I will be available for on-line assessment and limited appointments for those who have an urgent medical need for treatment and care which cannot wait, and subject to assessment.
