Update to wearing of Face Masks – as of 1st June 2023



Wearing face masks

The Practice has reviewed the guidance on the wearing of masks in the surgery. The decision has been made to cease routinely wearing masks unless the guidance changes or unless members of Staff or patients prefer to wear masks.


Vulnerable Patients

The practice is aware that there are patients who are clinically vulnerable and therefore will choose to continue to wear masks and in turn will wish for their clinician to wear a mask when consulting or administering treatment. If this applies to you, please let Reception know and we will notify the clinician. There will be a supply of masks in the clinicians’ rooms.

Prior to an appointment you may not wish to wait in the waiting room, instead you may prefer to wait in your car and be phoned when it is your turn to be seen – again please let Reception know and we will make the necessary arrangements.
