NHS approach to COVID-19 for Healthcare settings from Thursday 24th February 2022

Posted by:  - Posted on:

Despite restrictions having been lifted effective Thursday 24th February 2022 for the general population, NHS England have instructed healthcare settings that enhanced infection control measures must remain on healthcare sites.

As such when visiting the practice or other healthcare settings you will still need to:

  • Wear a face mask
  • Use hand gel🖐
  • Social distance

As a location where there are likely to be concentrations of vulnerable patients, we need to keep our most vulnerable patients safe. Due to testing and self-isolation guidance being lifted cases of undetected Covid-19 will be circulating in the community and these measures will help to protect those most vulnerable and to protect our staff team. Thank you for helping us to keep our staff and patients safe.
