NHS Patients, staff and visitors must continue to wear face coverings in healthcare settings
15 July 2021
England’s Chief Nurse has today reminded the public that everyone accessing or visiting healthcare settings must continue to wear a face covering and follow social distancing rules.
Covid restrictions will end in many settings in England from Monday.
However, Public Health England’s infection prevention control guidelines and hospital visiting guidance are set to remain in place for all staff and visitors.
That means NHS visitor guidance will stay in place across all health services including hospitals, GP practices, dental practices, optometrists and pharmacies to ensure patients and staff are protected.
Staff, patients and visitors will also be expected to continue to follow social distancing rules when visiting any care setting as well as using face coverings, mask and other personal protection equipment.
The NHS will continue to support staff in ensuring that the guidance is followed in all healthcare settings.
We’ve introduced an online consultation service so you don’t always need to come into the practice to get our medical expertise. Why not save time and try our new online service?
You can input your symptoms online and will receive a response from the practice - usually that day, if a request is received within the Online Consultation daily request times. If a request is received after 1.00 pm it will be dealt with the following day.
You will also have access to reliable and trustworthy self-help generic information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week that may help you to avoid an appointment altogether. You can also use the system to request test results, sick notes, referral letters and medical reports.
Online Consultation – It’s Simple, Safe and Personal
**PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO COVID-19 ONLINE BOOKING FOR APPOINTMENTS HAS BEEN TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED -
ALL REQUESTS FOR APPOINTMENTS WILL BE TRIAGED BY A DOCTOR OR NURSE AND THE MAJORITY OF CONSULTATIONS WILL BE CARRIED OUT REMOTELY, EITHER BY TELEPHONE OR VIDEO CONSULTATION - ANY FACE TO FACE CONSULTATIONS WILL BE APPROVED BY A GP OR NURSE**
(IF YOU ARE REQUESTED TO ATTEND THE SURGERY PLEASE WEAR A FACE COVERING - THANK YOU)
