FACE COVERINGS

Help us, help you to stay safe

We are asking all patients to arrive on time, alone and wearing a face covering when attending our surgery.

Please see more information below regarding wearing face coverings at Honley Surgery.

 

STAFF

Our staff wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) including face masks and aprons, we have protective screens in our waiting area and wherever possible social distancing guidelines are maintained.

WHAT TO WEAR

You can use a scarf or bandanna that ties behind your head.

HOMEMADE FACE COVERINGS

You can make your own face covering at home by clicking HERE to follow instructions on the government website.

HOW TO WEAR A FACE COVERING

Face coverings should cover the mouth and nose.

You should wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or use a sanitiser before putting on a face covering, before and after removing.

Avoid wearing the face covering on your neck or forehead.

Don’t share face coverings.

EXEMPTIONS

We know some people may find it difficult to wear a face covering and we will make suitable arrangements to see these patients safely.

Please click HERE for information on Face Covering Exemptions.

People who do not need to wear a face covering are:


Children under the age of three.


Primary school aged children (under 11) who may find it difficult to manage them correctly.


People who have a physical or mental illness or impairment, or a disability that means they cannot put on, wear or remove a face covering.


If putting on, wearing or removing a face covering would cause severe distress.

CARERS

If you usually attend your appointments with the support of a carer they can still attend the surgery/practice with you. They will also need to wear a face covering.
