COVID Prevention – Mask Wearing Update

Dear Patients,

Please be aware there has been a recent increase in the number of reported COVID cases.

As a precautionary measure secondary healthcare providers (eg hospitals) have re-instated the requirement for patients and staff to wear masks.

As a primary care provider GP Practices are not as yet required to implement such a change.

However in the interests of infection control our clinical team will from tomorrow resume wearing a mask.

Whilst we will not insist on patients wearing a mask we would strongly recommend that any patients visiting our Practice do wear one for appointments until further notice.

Together we can keep infection down.
