FACE MASKS

The rule for the wearing of face masks has not been relaxed in Health Service buildings. Please can you wear a face mask if you have to visit the surgery for an face to face appointment with the GP or Nurse.

If you have a valid medical reason for not wearing a mask a face shield should be worn.

The Surgery will not supply masks to Patients, and you may be refused entry.

Thank you for your co-operation.
