Following statement taken from their website on 26th March 2020:


Following guidelines set out by NHS England on the 25th March, the practice will now be temporarily closed as per national instruction for direct patient care, even in the event of an emergency. We would like to reassure you that we will continue to triage our patients via remote advice, analgesia and antimicrobial where indicated.

If you have a dental emergency, please contact the surgery during working hours on 01208 873290 or email Where a member of our team will speak to you and arrange a call back from a dentist. We will then give you advice and triage your dental problem. Patients who require emergency treatment after thorough triage will be referred to an urgent dental care service.

Patients CAN NOT be seen at dental practices that have not been designated as urgent dental care sites.

These measures are in place to break the cycle of spread of COVID 19 and to protect the vulnerable from asymptomatic carriers. We understand this worrying time for our patients. We are all working hard playing our part to help the NHS and the wider community.

Regular updates will be given on our website and Facebook page.

From the team at Carriage Works Dental

"To all our Kernow Veterinary Group Clients


Following Government advice we will now be switching to urgent Veterinary cover only - this is for 2-3 weeks then under review

We will continue to be here for you and your pets

If you have an appointment booked with our surgery, we will be ringing you to defer any non urgent appointments where appropriate, some non urgent routine operations may get delayed

Please note our new Covid 19 protocol for attending the surgery for appointments:

🐾 For patients that are unwell a video/phone consultation can take place (charged for) this may then result in needing to come to the surgery for further treatment (no further consult charge)

🐾 Repeat prescription checks for long term medications can be done by video consultations


🐾 When you call the surgery to book your appointment the receptionist will ask a series of questions and then advise you to wait in your car upon arrival, please let them know the make, model & colour - once you arrive in the car park please call from your car to let us know you are here

🐾 The vet will come to the car, take a history, maintaining a 2m distance, the vet will then take your pet into the practice where a nurse will hold your pet while the vet examines them, whilst you remain in your car

🐾 Any medications will be brought out to you and the vet will return your pet to you

🐾 The vet will ask reception to call you to take payment over the phone by card - we will not be accepting any cash payments

🐾 We will be introducing a telemedicine service (via telephone/video call) soon, more details to follow soon - some post op checks can be done over the phone now with your clinic nurses

Thank you for your continued support and cooperation"
