Face Masks in Primary Care Setting NHS England update: 7th July 2022
It is apparent that we have entered the next COVID-19 wave. Across the last seven days we have had a 97% increase in our nosocomial COVID-19 cases in acute Trust settings and a 25% increase in our mental health settings, this has also included a rise in the numbers of patients who have been admitted into critical care beds. In addition, we have also observed an increase in COVID-19 related staff absence.
Park Avenue & Kings Heath Health have made in policy that ALL PATIENTS & STAFF entering either surgery MUST wear a face mask or covering.
Welcome to Park Avenue & Kings Heath Practices
The practice was started in 1899 at 5 East Park Parade with two doctors in partnership. The practice gradually expanded and by 1969 there were four partners. New larger premises at 168 Park Avenue North were purchased in 1970.
After a further period of expansion, the adjoining property at 166 Park Avenue North was also purchased. The new properties were converted and extended to form today’s surgery which now houses two partners and a large primary health care team.
We aim to provide our patients with the best possible personal care. We provide a wide range of services and health checks. All doctors provide family planning (including emergency contraception), maternity care and child health surveillance. Dr Nagarajan provides a weekly clinic for minor surgery procedures.
