Non-urgent advice: Face Masks and Coverings
To control the spread of COVID 19 we are now asking that you wear a face mask / covering when you visit the surgery. If you do not have one when you arrive one will be given to you prior to entry to the surgery.
If you cannot wear a face mask for medical or other reasons we will ask that you wait in a clinical room for the Doctor or Nurse to see you rather than in the waiting room
