CORONAVIRUS UPDATE:

Following Government guidelines ALL patients visiting the practice will be asked to wear a face covering. If you present at the practice without a face covering we will have to send you away .

Face coverings are not only to protect yourself but also the safety of other patients as well as our Doctors, Nurses & other staff members.

We thought this handy government link on ways you can make your own face coverings would be helpful; they don’t have to be a surgical masks.

After 7 days of self-isolation, if you feel better and no longer have a high temperature you can return to your normal routine.

Cough may persist for several weeks in some people, despite the coronavirus infection having cleared. A persistent cough alone does not mean that you must continue to stay at home for more than 7 days.
