Face Coverings

“I protect you, you protect me”

In accordance with new government guidance we are now asking, if possible, that all patients wear a face covering 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 (GPs and Nursing Team) 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; a scarf or a homemade coverings 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 11 are not required to wear face masks.
