‘The government has now removed all domestic legal restrictions regarding Covid-19 in England.
New guidance for opticians recommends that the decision to wear a face mask should be risk assessed, depending on the proximity to the patient and amount of time spent with the patient. This means that our staff will continue to wear masks in some situations, but we no longer require you to do so.
If you would prefer all staff to wear a face mask while you are in the practice for your appointment we are happy to do so if you request it.
We continue to follow the strict NHS guidelines for cleaning and sanitising surfaces and equipment, and offer hand sanitiser throughout the practice.’
