Brighton GP surgery closed for coronavirus deep clean set to re-open

The leader of Brighton and Hove City Council has said that two branches of a GP surgery which closed for a "deep clean" are to reopen.

Speaking to journalists at a press conference on Tuesday, Cllr Nancy Platts said: "Where GP surgeries feel they've been at risk, they've had a deep clean."

Ms Platts said she was not aware of any other surgeries closing, adding: "One of the GP surgeries is reopening tomorrow but the important point is that they have had a deep clean and they are reopening as soon as they can." The surgery was confirmed as The County Oak Medical Centre.

Ms Platts said the council was putting up posters around the city with public health advice.

Well it comes as it's been confirmed a third GP surgery in Brighton - the Haven Practice near Preston Park - is now also being cleaned.
