Face coverings

As per the Government guidelines, from Monday 15th June, all patients aged 11 or over visiting the surgery will need to wear their own face covering at all times while inside the surgery. A cloth face covering should cover your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably. It can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head. Please visit https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/how-to-wear-and-make-a-cloth-face-covering. Thank you for your cooperation.
