FACE COVERING – ARE STILL REQUIRED IN PRIMARY CARE

FACE COVERINGS

IPC guidance remains in primary care settings Following the Government announcement that from  Thursday (27 January) face coverings will no longer be mandatory in public places, we want to remind primary care colleagues that the UK Health Security Agency’s infection prevention control (IPC) guidance remains in place for all staff and patients, in GP practices, dental practices, optometrists and pharmacies to ensure that everyone is protected. Please continue to encourage patients to wear a face covering to keep staff and other patients safe.
