While the use of face coverings and face masks are no longer a legal requirement in Scotland, in line with NHS Lothian Guidance we are asking our patients to please still wear a covering or mask over your face when attending the Practice (unless exempt). If you do not have your own mask then you can request one when you arrive.
Our clinical staff are continuing to wear masks during all face to face appointments, and our office staff wear masks when away from their own desks.
NHS Lothian is reviewing the use of masks on at least a monthly basis while continuing to monitor infections rates as well as current government and public health policies.
If the NHS advice on face coverings and masks changes we will keep our patients informed.
Thank you for helping us keep infections rates down within the practice.
