In line with recent guidance from the Prime Minister, we are asking patients that come IN to the surgery to please where a face mask or face covering (a scarf if you do not have a mask) when entering the surgery from Monday 18th May 2020.
We are currently exploring if we are able to obtain a supply of masks from the health board however at present the PPE we have in the surgery is only for staff use, if we shared this with the public we would run out unfortunately therefore we are asking that you buy/make or use a scarf.
We do understand this advice from the Prime Minister is aimed at England however there is growing evidence that some type of face covering can reduce the spread of infection.
The advice is to wear a face covering in enclosed spaces where social distancing is not always possible and where you may come into contact with others that you do not normally meet. Children under the age of two should not have their faces covered, and nor should any of primary age who do not have somebody with them who is supervising them.
We will also increasingly treat patients in their cars where possible however we understand that some patients will need examination. We aim to use only two rooms in the surgery again to minimise infection. In order to keep the waiting room as empty as possible please arrive on time to your appointment, if the waiting room has too many patients, you may be asked to wait in your car or outside.
This is aimed at preventing people who have the virus but are not experiencing symptoms from passing it on to others.
Thank you for your patience and for your support.
