Face Coverings mandatory for surgery visits from 15 June 2020

In line with recent government guidance, from June 15th 2020, it is mandatory for any patient attending the surgery to wear a mask or face covering.  We ask that a covering is worn not only for face to face appointments, but also for carpark tests eg blood tests and blood pressure and for prescription collection. 

There are some exceptions:

  • Face coverings should not be used by children under the age of 3.
  • Exceptions can be made for those visitors or patients with respiratory conditions, sensory needs and people who may find it difficult to manage them correctly.

Thank you.

A group of local volunteers have kindly made face coverings.  They are available at reception for a small donation to raise funds for Thirsk Community Care.  Please press the buzzer for reception if you need a face cover.

We are immensely grateful for all of your continued support.
