You will now be asked to wear a face covering if you are coming to our GP practice for an appointment. This will help protect you, other patients in the waiting area, and staff.

Face coverings should not be used by children under the age of 3 or those who may find it difficult to manage them correctly. For example, primary age children unassisted, or those with respiratory conditions.

Face coverings can help stop the spread of coronavirus by preventing you from inadvertently passing on the disease to others if you have it but are not showing symptoms. By wearing a face covering, you’ll be helping us to make sure our GP practices remain safe places for people to receive care.

It’s important to remember that, it’s still so important to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds on a regular basis.

Information about wearing face coverings and how to make your own is available on the gov.uk website
