The practice is requesting that ALL patients visiting the surgery  (over the age of 4y) wear some form of face covering, even if you don't have symptoms of COVID-19. This can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head - you do not need to wear a surgical mask as used by clinical staff.

If possible please attend alone as this will minimise the risk of infection to others.
