A CORONAVIRUS outbreak has been confirmed at a surgery in Ledbury.

Ledbury Health Partnership, which runs surgeries in St Katherine’s Street and Market Street, said six members of staff have tested positive for the virus and are self-isolating.

Despite this, the surgery maintains there has not been a breach of PPE.

A spokesman for the surgery said: "Five members of our non-clinical team and one clinical staff member have tested positive for COVID-19.

"There have been no breaches of PPE with patients.

"As a precaution, some of our remaining team will be self-isolating.

"We have made alternative arrangements due to staffing levels which includes rearranging a small number of non-urgent appointments; these patients have been informed accordingly.

"Our COVID-19 vaccination clinics will continue running as planned at the Ledbury Community Hall and therefore you should still attend if you have been invited.

"The practice remains open and you can continue to contact us by telephone or online should you need us.

"Thank you for your understanding and patience at this difficult time."
