URGENT PATIENT COMMUNICATION

WEARING A FACE COVERING

WHEN ENTERING THE PRACTICE

The government recommendation from 15th June 2020 is that all visitors to the practice are strongly urged that when attending practice premises that they should be asked to wear a face covering. This does not need to be a clinical grade mask but could be a scarf or bandana. A cloth face covering should cover your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably.

Please wash your hands before putting your face covering on and when removing it. It is important that you don’t touch your face covering when wearing it, as this could result in hand to mask transmission of the virus.

The practice will not be able to provide you with a mask or face covering but we will try to remind you of the need to do so when making an appointment.
