Our Mask and Face Covering Guidelines from 27 January 2022
Despite the changes to the law regarding the wearing of face coverings coming into force on 27th January the government guidance still requires that:
“Universal masking with face coverings or surgical masks to prevent the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 and other respiratory infectious agents in health and care settings, as a source control measure, should continue to be applied for all staff, patients and visitors.”
We will therefore still be asking all patients to continue to wear face coverings in surgery to help protect vulnerable patients on our premises, but also to protect staff so that we can continue to provide healthcare services to our patients.
We appreciate your continued cooperation.
