As a Medical Practice the decision of mask wearing in the building is in place to provide protection to everyone. We encourage all patients to wear a mask whilst in the Practice - this is to reduce the potential for exposure to any illnesses, respiratory or other air-transmissible illnesses.

Patients will continue to be screened for respiratory symptoms. Only asymptomatic patients are allowed in the Practice. We still encourage mask wearing even if you do not have symptoms in order to protect yourself from potential infection.

The introduction of COVID has made us aware of the benefits of hygiene and infection control. We fully encourage hand washing, distancing and masks.
