Face coverings & physical distancing will continue in General Practice:-

The Scottish Government requires General Practice and other healthcare settings to have different infection control and physical distancing guidance to other places such as hospitals and shops. This is to help reduce the risk to practice staff and to people attending the practice who may be at greater risk if they catch Covid 19. From 19 July 2021 (when we went to Level 0) the following rules still apply in General Practice:

 wearing of face coverings by patients and the public (unless you are exempt)

 physical distancing of 2 metres in waiting rooms

 contact your practice by telephone in the first instance

 wearing of PPE by staff

 screening of all patients for Covid 19 symptoms.

Please support your Practice Team by complying with this guidance
