Following the Prime Minister's recent update on face coverings and social distancing measures, England's Chief Nursing Officer Ruth May has now clarified that face coverings must still be worn in healthcare settings: "Face coverings and social distancing measures will remain in place across healthcare settings so that the most vulnerable people can continue to safely attend hospital, their GP surgery, pharmacy or any other healthcare settings for advice, care and treatment. And it is important for the public to continue to play their part when visiting NHS and care settings to help protect our staff and patients, particularly those who may be more vulnerable to infections."

This provides much needed clarity for Circus Dental. We will continue with the following mandatory measures when you visit that are in place for your protection.

  1. Face coverings MUST be worn except where a recognised exemption exists,
  2. All our team will continue to work under our existing strict, standard operating procedures with high levels of PPE,
  3. We will continue to operate air purification machines within the practice setting, https://circusdental.com/news/...
  4. We will only be able to see people with scheduled appointments,
  5. We will continue to screen every patient with a mandatory Covid questionnaire prior to every appointment. This is a key measure in ensuring your safety at the practice,
  6. Our waiting room is operational but if it exceeds our acceptable low capacity we will ask you to wait outside,
  7. Our bathroom facilities are also in operation.

Rest assured we are still open for all your dental needs and we will continue to make your visit a friendly and professional experience. Thank you for your continued understanding.
