Covid Restrictions from Monday 19th July

Whilst Covid restrictions will end in many settings, in England, from Monday people accessing or visiting healthcare settings must continue to wear a face covering and follow social distancing rules. This is 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.

Covid-19 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 required 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 (2m) social distancing. Test and isolate if you have any symptoms.

If you have symptoms, you must get a PCR test as soon as possible and before visiting your GP. Rapid lateral flow tests should not be used to confirm infection.

It’s vital that you and anyone in your household isolate until you receive your test result, and for 10 days thereafter if the result is positive.

Wash/sanitise hands regularly.
