Easing of COVID restrictions

Following the publication of England’s COVID-19 summer 2021 and the Prime Minister’s follow-up statement on 12 July, the government has stated that health and care settings in England should continue to maintain appropriate infection prevention and control (IPC) measures after the 19th July. This will continue throughout 2021 and in to 2022.

We as a practice are therefore continuing to follow the College’s Amber guidance and the NHSEI Optical SOP.

As per NHS guidelines on visiting healthcare settings we are asking our patients to continue to wear a mask and maintain usual social distancing rules – as per the below link. We will continue to observe our guidelines and keep our patients updated as the situation changes.

Many thanks for your understanding
