Due to the current pandemic we are doing most consultations by telephone or video. If we ask you to come to the surgery we will be wearing personal protective equipment including mask, gloves, eye protection and apron. You should also wear a face covering when coming to the surgery. A fabric mask is acceptable.
There is a video here which is useful to help explain the protective equipment to children.
