Advice for patients with pre-existing conditions

Face Coverings

There is no longer a requirement for surgery staff or patients to wear a face covering UNLESS they have respiratory symptoms or have a personal preference to do so. Health and care staff will continue to wear face masks as part of PPE when working with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 patients, including those working with un-triaged patients in primary care.
