Following recent NHS update our rules regarding face covering are changing.
From Thursday 16th June wearing face covering or face mask is no longer compulsory for our patients except for those who present with respiratory symptoms.
Although wearing the face covering is no longer compulsory for majority of our patients we still strongly encourage everyone to do so especially if you are in the high risk group.
You will notice that our clinicians may still wear the face covering in some circumstances depending on the level of risk and the type of medical issue they are assisting with.
We would like to thank all of you who accepted the necessary precautions we implemented during the pandemic.
This week is Loneliness Awareness Week, the event happens annually and is hosted by Marmalade Trust.
The campaign aims to reduce the stigma around loneliness and encourage people to talk more openly about it. The campaign aims to reach 18-24 year old’s, we know that young people feel more confident and motivated to take action to help other people who feel lonely rather than doing things to help themselves.
However, we know that loneliness is an issue that can affect us all, young or old, at any point in our lives.
This week, reach out to others, check in on friends and family, help someone who may be feeling lonely, small acts of kindness can make a big difference.
