From Friday 10 July it became mandatory to wear a face mask/covering in shops and indoor public areas, including our surgery.
However, please remember that some people will be exempt, and don't have to wear a face mask or covering, including some of our staff.
Please be respectful to other patients and staff as always, and remember the 2 metre social distancing rule.
Please arrive at the time of your appointment as you will not be permitted to sit in the waiting room if you are too early.
We have hand sanitisers available for you to use within the practice.
Please note your GP is unable to provide exemption letters for face coverings to patients - you do not need to prove you are exempt from wearing one. You need only advise, if asked, that you have a health condition or disability which means that you cannot wear a face covering.
However, if it would make you feel more confident when going out, you can download and print a card from Disability Equality Scotland which you can use to show that you are exempt. Please visit https://accessibletravel.scot/face-mask-exemption-not-everyone-can-wear-one/ to access these cards and read more about exemptions. Other cards are also available..
You can read more about face coverings moving out of lockdown on the Scottish Government website.
