Here we detail the advice and services from Meneage Dental during the spread of the COVID-19 virus:
To all our lovely patients, family and friends,
Given the unprecedented situation in the UK regarding the rapidly spreading COVID-19 virus, we feel we must use our own clinical judgement, follow professional standards, and act in the best interests of our patients and staff.
We feel it is essential that we do our part to reduce the spread of this virus, and so, it is with very heavy hearts, that we have taken to decision to temporarily close the practice for routine procedures, until this has passed.
Looking after the health of our patients is our absolute priority and so we will be operating an Emergency System only. This service is for our patients who have severe pain or swelling during this period of closure. If you urgently need assistance, please call us on 01326 574006 and follow the instructions.
If you have any of the recognised Covid-19 symptoms, you will be referred to the NHS 111 service:
- a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
These services will be very restricted, so it is important that you do telephone us. The main entrance will be closed but we are here to help.
We will of course keep you updated with the latest information on our website www.meneagedental.co.uk, Facebook and Twitter.
As a team, we are doing everything we possibly can to remain fit, well and able to work so that we can continue our usual high standard of dental care for you when we return.
Take care of each other.
Best wishes, Team Meneage.
