The COVID Pandemic is still with us and there continues to be transmission in the community.  It is therefore vital that we continue to protect each other.  Healthcare settings will continue to make infection control measures a priority. This will include asking patients to social distance and to wear face coverings where possible.

NHS visitor guidance for face coverings will stay in place across all health settings including hospitals, GP practices, dental practices, optometrists and pharmacies to ensure patients and staff are protected.

  • Please continue to wear a face covering and practice social distancing in healthcare buildings to protect yourself, staff and other patients.

  • Please be advised that the requirement for masks and social distancing is still in place across all healthcare settings.

  • Please remember to wear a face covering when you come into the surgery, please use the hand sanitiser provided and do not attend if you have any signs or symptoms of the COVID-19 virus

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

– A high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
– A new, continuous cough – this means you’ve started coughing repeatedly

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.
Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you’re staying at home.
