Although face masks will no longer be a legal requirement from 19 July 2021, as a clinical healthcare setting, Kiveton Park Medical Practice has decided that all staff and patients must continue to wear masks within the surgery until further notice. 

Infection rates of Covid-19 are on the increase, especially in our locality, and we feel it is imperative that we protect our most vulnerable patients and our workforce.  This is essential if we are to continue to provide patients with a local primary care service.  The Delta variant is highly contagious and has the potential to spread quickly in confined areas.  We simply cannot risk acting as a focus for infection. 

We thank patients for their understanding and co-operation.  In the hopefully unlikely event that a patient refuses to respect this request, then they may be asked to rearrange the appointment so that we can see them in a COVID secure environment. 

Thank you.
