Facemasks must still be worn in the Surgery

The Government has announced that lockdown restrictions are coming to an end and from Monday, 19th July 2021 and the wearing of face masks in public places becomes optional.

 As the surgery is deemed to be a high risk environment, the Doctors and Staff will continue to wear masks when dealing with patients, face to face and we will still expect patients to wear a mask when coming in to the Surgery.

 This is line with NHS policy and is for the protection of both vulnerable patients and staff.
