COVID Safety Measures

While the legal requirement to wear a face covering will be removed from Thursday 27 January 2022, we respectfully ask all patient's who are able to wear face coverings to continue to do so when visiting the practice. This is so that we can help protect our staff and all of our patients, including our most vulnerable ones.
