UPDATE ON MASK WEARING IN OUR PRACTICES

Patients are no longer required to wear face masks when visiting our surgeries. However ...

However, we would recommend that patients who are immunosuppressed or have respiratory problems continue to wear a mask and patients presenting with Covid-19 symptoms will  be required to wear a mask when they come in.

Our staff will still continue to wear a mask during patient contact by default and vulnerable patients can rest assured that all staff are still maintaining precautions.

All practice staff are still required to test twice weekly for Covid-19 and are required to self-isolate if they
test positive.

If you are asked to wear a mask as a result of your symptoms we would ask that you respect this request as this will protect staff from Covid-19, reducing the need for our staff to isolate which in turn leads to a reduction in the number of appointments we have available.

Should you wish to continue to wear a mask when visiting our practices you are welcome to do so and we will continue to keep a supply of masks available to patients.

Many thanks for your cooperation.
