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.
