**IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE USE OF FACE COVERINGS IN THE PRACTICE FROM 19TH JULY 2021**

Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make our two surgeries as safe as possible for our patients and staff. We will continue to do this and from the 19th July nothing will change whilst on our premises. Patients will still need to wear a mask/face covering, socially distance and use hand sanitiser and all our patient facing staff will continue to wear PPE. We do understand that it can be frustrating but we know that when patients come to us they may be sick and vulnerable. Some cannot receive the COVID vaccine due to medical reasons so we feel it would be wrong to not continue with these small precautions that can help to protect the patients and staff. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

**IMPORTANT INFORMATION – **COVID VACCINATION CERTIFICATES

GPs DO NOT PROVIDE THESE CERTIFICATES SO PLEASE DON’T CALL THE PRACTICE

Please see https://www.gov.uk/guidance/demonstrating-your-covid-19-vaccination-status-when-travelling-abroad  for further information.
