MANOR Park Medical Centre has told its patients: ‘Nothing will change at the surgery on Monday.’

Boris has declared Monday as Freedom Day.

Here is the Covid update from the GP surgery in Polegate High Street: “Throughout the pandemic, we have strived to make the surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff.

We will continue to do so going forward. From the 19th July, nothing will change at the surgery.

Patients will still need to wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser when entering the surgery. Staff will continue to wear PPE.

We do understand that it can be frustrating but we know that when people come to us they are sick and vulnerable so by taking these small precautions we can protect everyone.

In terms of opening up, as many of you know, we have never been closed and in fact have consulted with much higher numbers of patients than we did pre-covid: face to face, by phone, by e consult, and by video.

The Polegate Community has come so far in trying to minimise the impact of Covid locally and we are sure you understand that we need to keep the surgery as safe as possible for our patients and our fantastic staff.”
