It is now mandatory to wear a mask when you go out in public. We also ask you to do so when coming to the medical centre for care.
It does not matter whether it is a surgical mask, or a homemade fabric one. Some people wear one of the full-face plastic shields, but you are now meant to wear a mask underneath them too.
Our doctors and staff have been wearing masks and eye protection for some time. We are taking all the extra precautions to minimise the spread of COVID-19, and we hope you agree that the inconvenience is worth putting up with for now.
Remember too that we are doing many of our consultations by telehealth (video link) or telephone so you can #stayathome. The medical centre is still open if you need to be examined or have a test or procedure, so don’t hesitate to contact your doctor with questions or concerns.
We can help with all coronavirus related concerns, and refer you for testing or treatment if needed.
But we also remain your family doctor, and we will take the time to manage new or ongoing health issues.
Please contact us with your questions, or if you have any symptoms of concern. Social distancing measures apply in and around our medical centre for your safety.
Take simple precautions to reduce your risk. Wash your hands frequently. Stay at home unless it is essential to go out. Isolate yourself and wear a mask if you are unwell.
Contact us to discuss your circumstances or for personal advice.
