Wearing Face Masks from 15 June ( posted on Jun 11, 2020 )

If you are asked to visit the Surgery for an appointment with a Clinician, would you please now wear a face mask or a face covering when you attend. This is to continue to keep all the Staff safe as lock-down restrictions are eased and whilst the chance of random infection remains.

 

Advice and guidance on face masks from the World Health Organisation can be found here (https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/advice-for-public/when-and-how-to-use-masks)
