The highest priority for the NHS remains the safety of staff, patients and visitors. While COVID restrictions will end in many settings in England from 19 July, everyone accessing or visiting healthcare settings must continue to wear a face covering (unless they are exempt) and follow social distancing rules.
Public Health England’s infection prevention control guidelines and hospital visiting guidance are therefore set to remain in place for all staff and visitors and across all health services including hospitals, GP practices, dentists, optometrists and pharmacies to ensure patients and staff are protected.

We have face visors available for those with communication difficulties or were a face mask would cause distress. If you are exempt then please inform our reception staff and wear your exemption badge. You may be asked to wait outside in certain circumstances such as displaying symptoms that are similar to COVID 19.
Thank you for your understanding
