COVID Update: in line with other NHS providers, we will be continuing to require staff and patients to wear masks in surgery to protect those who are vulnerable. As part of our work, we see sick people and therefore it is vital we ensure that those who remain more susceptible to the COVID and its complications are safe in the surgery. As the virus numbers improve (hopefully) over the spring and summer we will continue to review this and the ongoing phone first policy for doctor appointments.
