Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information for patients
The safety and welfare of our patients, students and staff is of utmost importance to the College of Medicine & Dentistry. We would like to support you all during this difficult time and offer support and assistance to anyone who needs it. We will of course keep all of you updated as the situation progresses and with any new information we receive.
As I am sure you are aware we are currently dealing with a pandemic COVID-19. The situation with this is changing daily and new information is always being released by the Government. We are progressing work on the premises to make it safe for our patients, students and staff. Dental practices have been advised to prioritise urgent treatment where possible. Once we have a confirmed date for reopening patients will be telephone triaged and appointments made according to treatment priority. However, if you require URGENT treatment we have the following care in place.
If you need access to emergency care:
· Have you had or anyone in your house been self-isolating?
· Do you have any symptoms?
· High temperature or continuous cough?
YES, to ANY of the above CALL 111. They will direct you to an emergency facility with appropriate protective equipment which will allow staff to treat you in a safe environment.
If NO, you can contact our emergency dental clinic Scott Arms 0121 357 5000.
If you have any enquiries you can contact one of our clinic team on 0121 345 9833.
The safety of our patients is our priority and we thank you for your co-operation at this difficult time.
Best wishes from everyone at CoMD
