PLEASE WEAR FACE COVERINGS. COVID-19 PROTECTIONS ARE STILL IN PLACE IN THIS SURGERY.
In line with current Government guidance patients are required to continue to wear a face covering in all healthcare settings. Face coverings primarily protect others, so doing so, unless exempt, is key to preventing spread of infection.
CONTINUE TO RESPECT (2M) SOCIAL DISTANCING TEST AND ISOLATE IF YOU HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS.
If you have symptoms you must get at PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) test as soon as possible and before visiting your GP. Rapid lateral flow tests should not be used to confirm infection. It’s vital that you and anyone in your household isolate until you receive your test result, and for 10 days thereafter if the result is positive.
WASH AND SANITISE HANDS REGULARLY
From the 1st June 2021, as a practice and Primary Care Network, we are only doing second vaccinations for the cohorts 1 to 9 (aged 50 years and over or patients with Long Term Conditions). All other patients should contact 119 or to book your Covid Vaccination appointment online when the Government has announced your age group.
