FACE COVERING DURING COVID

Patient face coverings

From April 2022 people are not required to wear face-coverings in several environments however we would still request you wear a mask when attending the surgery unless you are exempt.

For the safety of patients and staff we will still continue to wear masks and other protective items.

As a practice we are not able to provide any patient with an exemption certificate or letter.  The risks of Covid-19 infection is still significant so please wear face coverings.
