UPDATE ON FACE COVERINGS FROM PURTON SURGERY

Back to overview

June 15, 2022

Infection control guidance from NHSE was updated on 1 June 2022


The updated guidance from NHS England means that not all patients will be asked to wear a mask or face covering when attending the Practice.
We will now only ask patients attending the Practice who have respiratory or COVID19 symptoms to wear a mask or other face covering.

If you are coming to the Practice to see a member of our team because you have respiratory symptoms, you will be asked to wear a mask or face covering.

Clinicians at the Practice may not routinely wear a facemask when seeing you for your appointment.
They will wear a mask if you have respiratory symptoms. Some staff may choose to wear a mask to limit their own risk, but this will now be an individual decision.
