Face coverings and social distancing measures

Face coverings and social distancing measures will remain in place across healthcare settings so that the most vulnerable people can continue to safely attend hospital, their GP surgery, pharmacy or any other healthcare settings for advice, care and treatment. And it is important for the public to continue to play their part when visiting NHS and care settings to help protect our staff and patients, particularly those who may be more vulnerable to infections. It is vital that in healthcare settings, we do all we can to reduce the risk of infection for those working in our services and those who need our care.

Let’s keep each other safe. Coronavirus is still with us. The NHS still requires Face Coverings to be worn when visiting our practice. Thank you for your support.

We will not link your name or identifiable details to this information. The information collected will include your age, ethnicity, general area location, and details about your previous and future cervical screening and link it to data from the national screening database.
