When attending your appointment
When attending your appointment, we will be putting in place a range of measures to minimise any risk of COVID-19:
- PPE will be worn by our clinicians.
- You will be asked to wear a face covering (mask) to protect all.
- the appointment may take longer than usual.
If you choose not to attend your appointment, please contact your GP practice.
It is always helpful for us to know why so we can help you with any concerns you might have. If you still don’t wish to attend the appointment, it can be offered to someone else.
You must NOT attend an appointment if you or any member of your household are suffering from any of the symptoms associated with COVID-19 or are self-isolating.
If this applies to you, please the reception team so that you can reschedule your appointment for a different time.
