Mask Wearing from 19th July 2021

Mask wearing will become optional from 19th July 2021 as per government guidelines announced on Monday 5 July 2021. We must stress however, that the same guidance suggests caution and recommends ongoing wearing of masks in closed spaces, small areas and where vulnerable people will be present.

As you will often, be in close proximity to our clinicians when you come to us, we will continue to ask patients to wear masks on our premises until further notice. This is to minimise disruption to our service and ensure those most vulnerable are still protected when accessing care.


NHS Patients, Staff and Visitors Must Continue To Wear Face Coverings in Healthcare Settings
