Mask Wearing Policy- 19 July 2021
Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make the surgery as safe as possible for all of our patients and staff. We will continue to do so going forward.
From 19th July nothing will change at the surgery – patients will still need to wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the surgery and staff will continue to wear PPE. We do understand that it can be frustrating but we know that when people come to us they are sick and vulnerable so we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions that will protect people.
In terms of opening up, as many of you know, we have never been shut and in fact have consulted with much higher numbers of patients then we did pre-covid (face to face, by phone, by e-consult and by video), not counting vaccinating the local adult population against covid-19.
Somerset Gardens Family Health Practice has come so far in trying to minimise the impact of covid and we are sure you understand that we need to keep the surgery as safe for all patients as we can.
