Important updates regarding the COVID-19 Coronavirus
Update 23rd March 2020 - the Practice is now closed
Given the unprecedented situation in the UK regarding the COVID-19 virus we felt it was important to reassure you that we are continuing to work but now only providing a telephone triage service for our patients with urgent needs during normal working hours. Please note you will not be able to attend the practice in person at all for any treatment or assessment . A dentist will be able to offer advice over the phone to you and in some cases a prescription if this is required. If after the dentist has carried out a telephone assessment and confirms that a patient does require urgent dental treatment we will send an urgent referral for you to one of the allocated urgent referral clinics located in Birmingham where you will then be contacted by them and advised where to attend for your emergency dental treatment.. Please note you must have a referral from a dentist to be seen at one of the urgent clinics.
If you have an appointment in the immediate future you will by now have received a cancellation call or message from us . Please be assured that we will contact you to rearrange these appointments as soon as we are open for normal routine treatments again.
If you do have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us on 0121 777 4455 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Out of normal working hours we will always have an answer machine on which will give you contact details of NHS 111 option 1 to contact .
This information may change daily, and we will keep you up to date when ever changes occur.
As a team, we are doing everything we possibly can to remain well and able to offer a service to you as best we possibly can in the current circumstances.
