Mask wearing in healthcare settings
22nd March 2022 - 9:55 PM
Face coverings and face masks continue to be required in healthcare settings to comply with infection prevention and control (IPC) and adult social care guidance. This means all patients* must continue to wear their face covering/mask when visiting our surgeries.
You are required to wear a face covering on entering and must keep it on until you leave, unless you are exempt or have a reasonable excuse for removing it (such as being asked to by a member of staff).
The best available scientific evidence is that, when used correctly, wearing a face covering will reduce the spread of coronavirus particles, helping to protect you (our patients) and our team.
Thank you for your co-operation.
*Unless exempt. Examples of exemptions can be found here.
