Non-urgent advice: COVID Restrictions Announcement

We are awaiting formal guidance following the Government’s announcement on Monday regarding
the loosening of COVID-19 safety restrictions. However, as a healthcare setting with significant footfall, we must prioritise the safety of our patients, community and staff. Therefore, we will maintain our existing infection control measures, and ask all patients who are invited to attend for face to face appointments to wear a mask or face covering whilst in the surgery.

By necessity we will have ill and vulnerable patients in our premises, and we must ensure that they are protected as best as possible. We will continue to see patients face to face wherever clinically necessary, including for routine health checks and screening, as we have throughout the last year and a half.

Appointments will continue to only be given via a phone call to reception.

Thank you for your support
