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.
