Latest information on Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Parkway clinic is keeping up to date with the latest guidance and we are liasing with the local health board and Government to ensure the safety of all our patients and dental team, while also ensuring services are available as normally as possible.
If you any of the symptoms below please DO NOT attend the Clinic.
Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:
· a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
· a new, continuous cough – this means you’ve started coughing repeatedly
This will help to protect others in our community while you are infectious.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.
Currently there will not be testing those self-isolating with mild symptoms. Self-isolation advice can be found here: https://phw.nhs.wales/topics/latest-information-on-novel-coronavirus-covid-19/self-isolation-advice/
In light of the above advice we would urge you to reschedule your dental appointments if you have any of the associated symptoms (or even conventional flu-like symptoms) even if you have not been diagnosed with COVID-19, come into contact with a confirmed case, or travelled to an affected area.
Generally, Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease. We will not be refusing to see these groups of patients but would urge you to consider if it is worth the exposure to risk in a high footfall public area.
Information and advice on coronavirus is also available (and updated daily) on the Public Health Wales website; https://phw.nhs.wales/coronavirus
Parkway clinic will be reducing it clinical treatment in the evolving events to accommodate mainly emergency patients. Please refer back to the website for updates.

It is a good idea to visit PWC before your appointment to familiarise yourself with the Clinic. You are welcome to bring a friend or companion with you for support.
Firstly, we will LISTEN to your concerns. We will then LOOK to see how we can help you. We will aim to carryout a full examination which may include taking some radiographs. We understand that dental phobia is something that you are not always in control of, and it is important that you remain in control of your limits. We can then SPEAK to you about the best way forward for you. This may include some help with Sedation or General Anaesthetic, which our Anaesthetist will be able to discuss with you.
You will have the opportunity to ask questions before leaving. You may prefer to discuss your options with a family member or friend too. If you decide to go ahead with treatment, an appointment can be made at your convenience. In the meantime you are welcome to contact Parkway Clinic to discuss further queries.
