Mask Wearing after 19th July 2021

In view of the government’s intention to move to step 4 of the Covid-19 roadmap we have reviewed our infection prevention and control policy. It has been decided that no changes will be made to our current policy.

Patients will still need to wear a mask and use the hand sanitisers when attending the surgery.

We will continue to limit the number of people in the waiting room and our staff will continue to wear PPE.

The reason for making this decision is that cases of Covid-19 are high and rising and the virus is still impacting people’s health. As a healthcare establishment we inherently see and care for some of the most clinically vulnerable patients. We will continue to work hard to keep our surgery as safe as we can for our patients and staff.
