Covid-19 Update – Important Information For Our Patients Regarding Face Masks From Monday 15th June 2020

Whilst we still continue to limit the number of people entering the surgery, in accordance with new government guidance, we are now asking if possible, that all patients wear a face mask when attending the surgery for an appointment or for any other reason. This will help protect other patients and our staff from transmission of COVID-19.

All our staff will continue to wear PPE including medical-grade masks for all face-to-face appointments.

Face coverings do not need to be medical-grade masks but a scarf or a ‘home made’ mask are acceptable and could help prevent inadvertently passing on the virus to others if you have COVID-19 – whether or not you have symptoms.

Children under 2 are not required to wear face masks and children under 5 do not need to wear face coverings if they cannot use them without assistance.

Thank you for your continued co-operation.
