Changes in rules rules regarding face coverings and face masks.

Please remember it is essential to wear a face covering when entering Newton Place Surgery! As per new government guidance, we would expect you to provide your own face covering.

It was announced that with effect from Friday 24th July 2020 everyone is required to wear a face mask/covering when entering a shop. This is in addition to wearing one on public transport which has been mandatory for some time now.

If you feel you are unable to wear a face mask or covering for auditory/ sensory/ breathing reasons, please visit the gov.uk website by clicking here  to download an exemption  card for you to show if asked why you are not wearing one. 

Please note: IT IS NOT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE SURGERY TO ISSUE ANYONE WITH AN EXEMPTION LETTER OR CERTIFICATE.
