As of Monday 17th August we are allowed to carry out URGENT Aerosol Generating Procedures ( AGPS) under the NHS.
This means that we can use the drill again but only to do things like removing the nerve from a tooth if patient is in severe pain or to carry out difficult surgical extractions within the practice.
We no longer need to refer to Urgent Care Centres.
At this stage we are still unable to provide routine fillings, scalings, root treatments, crowns, bridges or veneers under the NHS.
We have not been provided with a date for routine care to resume.
We know how incredibly frustrating this is for our patients with outstanding treatment.
Due to this we have spent a lot of time working on and testing new operating procedures, purchasing our own enhanced PPE and staff training etc
We feel content that we can now safely offer routine care like scalings, crowns and bridgework again independently of the NHS. We feel our patients should have access to these services should they choose to do so on a private basis during this period.
We are able to offer routine treatments for a one off private fee until they become available on the NHS again. If you wish to consider a private option, please call us on 0141-554-0499 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have a waiting list for people we know need routine NHS AGPs and will be in touch to arrange appointments when we can. To be clear we are not ‘going private’ and that patients who choose to wait till we can carry out routine care on the NHS, can absolutely do so.
We have received a lot of kind messages during this difficult time and it has been greatly appreciated. Thank you for your patience and your continued support.
