COVID-19 update regarding face coverings

While COVID restrictions will end in many settings in England from 19 July, everyone visiting hospitals, GP practices, dentists, optometrists and pharmacies must continue to wear a face covering and follow social distancing rules, unless they are unable to do so for medical reasons.

This will help to ensure the safety of our patients, visitors and staff, especially those who are more vulnerable to infection.

We are following national guidelines in order to keep our patients and staff safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. This means you may be asked whether you have any symptoms of Coronavirus before attending your appointment and will be asked to wear a face covering when attending the surgery. Our staff will be wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) including face masks during face to face appointments. Please do not attend the surgery unless you have an appointment arranged in advance or have been asked to attend by a clinician.

If you’re concerned you may have Coronavirus or need advice, please visit the dedicated COVID-19 service on NHS111 online or call 111.
