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.
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.
