Face masks and coverings for patients

We are doing everything we can to protect patients and staff. There is evidence that wearing a face covering may help stop a person infected with covid-19 from spreading the virus further. We are asking that if you can, you wear some form of face covering when visiting the practice, even if you do not have symptoms of covid-19. This can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head. Face coverings should not be used by children under the age of 2 or those who may find it difficult to manage them correctly for example, those with respiratory conditions.
