Notice: Please make sure when ordering your prescriptions for holidays these are done with plenty of notice to make sure they can be dispensed in time, thank you.
Please see below update from our System Infection Prevention and Control team regarding mask wearing:
As people will be aware, the prevalence of COVID-19 has risen rapidly over the past week. This is due to the emergence of new Omicron subvariants BA.4 and 5.
We are, therefore, advising that Fluid Resistant Surgical Face masks (FRSM’s) be re-introduced into all areas of Primary Care (clinical and non-clinical) with immediate effect for the foreseeable future. Patients should also be advised to wear face coverings when in Primary Care premises. This is to try and offer our workforce the best level of protection. Other standard precautions (good ventilation, cleaning, hand hygiene) should continue.
