We are asking people to continue to wear masks when visiting the practice,  and also avoiding having coughs and colds in our waiting room.  We apologise that this may be frustrating,  but we need to keep our vulnerable patients safe, and also not risk  sudden closure of the practice due to this sneaky virus!

Why masks at level 1 for now? …..

  1. Avoiding Covid risk for all patients and staff while ensuring practice continuity
  2. Avoiding transmission of ordinary coughs and colds, so we can keep everyone, especially medically vulnerable people safe. This is important to avoid confusion/worry about whether they may have Covid, which would impact on their care.
  3. The college of GPs is still recommending this approach for safety for all.

Thank you from the team at Meadowbank!
