Visiting Your GP Surgery
PLEASE WEAR FACE COVERINGS - COVID-19 PROTECTIONS ARE STILL IN PLACE IN THIS SURGERY.
In line with current Government guidance patients are requested to continue to wear a face covering in all healthcare settings. Face coverings primarily protect others, so doing so, unless exempt, is key to preventing spread of infection.
CONTINUE TO RESPECT SOCIAL DISTANCING. TEST AND ISOLATE IF YOU HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS.
If you have symptoms you must get at PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) test as soon as possible and before visiting your GP. Rapid lateral flow tests should not be used to confirm infection..
WASH AND SANITISE HANDS REGULARLY.
