UPDATE LOCKDOWN 3

The update for Lockdown 3 is that Primary surgeries – Lip & Palate – are going ahead as they did for previous lockdowns. Bonegraphs had almost caught up from the previous lockdowns. They are on hold but will be scheduled asap after the current lockdown. Adult surgeries are on hold. Face to face clinics are also on hold but a plan is being worked on to ‘catch up’ as soon as possible after lockdown. Cleft staff are still working and are still contactable. Please make contact with them if you have any worries or concerns, From experience we know how much emotional energy goes into appointments and moreso surgeries. The team are working hard to keep us and themselves safe so that we can all of us hit the ground running when we get the okay.
