You need to wear a face covering in GP Practices
Many of the rules relating to COVID-19 are changing from today (24th February 2022).
Face coverings are still required in healthcare settings. Staff will also continue to test for COVID-19 regularly.
More information about the vaccination programme is to come and we will post information as we get it here and on the practice Facebook page.
This guidance is based on Government Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) guidance: "There are no immediate changes to IPC requirements. This includes the requirements for staff, patients and visitors to wear a mask/face covering in healthcare settings. The consistent application of IPC measures, alongside the roll out of the vaccine programme and staff and patient testing, remains the most effective defence against entry and spread of COVID-19 in healthcare settings."
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT ALL GP APPOINTMENTS ARE TELEPHONE APPOINTMENTS. IF THE GP NEEDS TO SEE YOU FACE TO FACE THEY WILL ARRANGE A SUITABLE TIME WITH YOU.
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY UNLESS SPECIFICALLY REQUESTED TO BY A GP
