Face Coverings


Please wear a face covering when entering the surgery including when attending for face to face appointments and also for prescription collection.  

People who spend time in a health care setting are more likely to catch coronavirus.


We need to minimise risk for other patients in the building that maybe severally vulnerable and protect our staff so they can continue to provide the public with its GP service, including GPs, Nurses, Health Care Assistants, Dispensary Staff and our reception team.


If you enter our surgery without wearing a face covering we will politely ask you to leave.

There are some exceptions:

  • Face coverings should not be used by children under the age of 3.
  • Exceptions can be made for those visitors or patients with respiratory conditions, sensory needs and people who may find it difficult to manage them correctly.

GPs are unfortunately not in a position to provide individual risk assessments or letters for patients who feel that they should be exempt from wearing a face mask. Government advice on the use of face coverings.

Optometrists advise how to wear glasses with facemasks to prevent fogging
