*To Mask or not to Mask?*
Although government guidelines are changing from 19th July, making it generally optional for the public to wear face coverings, this practice will continue to provide a full range of PPE within the surgeries and will require all our patients to wear face covering in the common areas to minimise any risk of infection.
This is because the same guidance suggests caution and recommends ongoing wearing of masks in closed spaces, small and crowded areas and where vulnerable people will be present.
As you may be in close proximity to our clinicians and potentially other vulnerable patients when you come to us, we will continue to ask patients to wear masks on our premises until further notice. This is to minimise disruption to our service and ensure those most vulnerable are still protected when accessing care.
