Face Covering

Patients who are attending surgery are encouraged to wear fabric face coverings if they have them. A face covering is simply something that covers your mouth and nose – this could be a scarf, a fabric face mask, or a piece of cloth.

Instructions on how to wear and make a cloth face covering can be found at: www.gov.uk/government/publications/how-to-wear-and-make-a-cloth-face-covering.

It is still important that you are:

  • Regularly washing your hands for 20 seconds at a time
  • Practising social distancing
  • Not touching your face
  • Using your elbow or a tissue to cough and sneeze
