Face Masks at Locking Hill Surgery

We are asking you not to come into the Surgery unless you have a good reason to do so. If we are able to deal with your issue over the phone or via video call we will do so. This is to help us reduce the spread of Covid -19 in line with national guidance.

However some patients will need to come into the surgery and we have measures in place to provide a safe environment for our patients and staff.

As part of these measures we ask patients and staff to wear face coverings whilst in the building

We understand that some people will find wearing a face covering difficult and some exceptions have been outlined by the Department of Health including:

  • children under 11 year
  • people who cannot tolerate masks because of a medical condition or a disability.

If you feel you cannot wear a face covering please discuss this with the clinician or Patient Service Administrator arranging your appointment so that we can make arrangements to ensure we keep our staff safe
