COVID-19: Visiting Your GP Surgery

In line with Government guidance, you are no longer required to wear a face covering when visiting the surgery unless you have respiratory symptoms or have a preference to do so.

Until we have further information about possible new strains, please be mindful of keeping a reasonable distance between yourself and others.

It is no longer a requirement to get a PCR test or undertake an LFD, neither is it mandatory to self-isolate unless you work in a healthcare or education – please check with your employer if in doubt.

Should you have COVID symptoms, it continues to be recommended that you stay at home as far as possible for 5 days, and that when you do go out you wear a face covering especially when visiting a health or social care environment.

Please continue to wash/sanitise hands regularly.

Disruption to services

The rates of infection have dropped dramatically but there may still be times when we have to cancel clinics at short notice due to members of our team or their dependents become unwell. We will, of course, let you know of any changes to clinics as quickly as possible and thank you for your understanding.
