Visiting the Practice

April 2023 – you are no longer required to wear a face mask when visiting the Medical Practice, unless this is your preference – excluding if you have acute respiratory symptoms or to see specific clinical staff. This requirement would be discussed with you if a face to face appointment was being arranged.

For the safety of the staff team, if you do have acute respiratory symptoms, please do not visit the practice and contact us via alternative options. Thank you for your support and understanding.

June 2022 update – You must continue to wear face masks and follow social distancing measures in this practice.
Thank you for keeping our staff and other patients safe from infectious diseases.

From the 19th July we will continue with current Health and Safety measures at the Practice. Please ensure you are aware of requirements whilst visiting the practice to protect both staff and patients. Thank you
