If you are attending the surgery for an appointment:-
- you must wear a mask. Staff wear a mask to protect you, wear a mask to protect them!
- You will be asked to use hand sanitiser.
- Staff may take your temperature at the door. If it reports that you have a fever (37.5+), you will be asked to stay outside while staff seek advice from a GP. If you are told you cannot access the surgery, please do not give staff abuse. We are looking after your health and the health of the surgery staff.
These are challenging times for everyone, please be supportive, understanding and kind to one another.
