Face coverings in practice

Patients and staff should continue to wear face masks in GP practices, NHS England has said.

Face masks should still be worn in GP practices as part of infection control guidance, following the January announcement by the Government that they would no longer be mandatory in public places.

In a bulletin, NHS England confirmed that the UK Health Security Agency’s infection prevention and control (IPC) guidance remains in place for staff and patients in general practice to ensure everyone is protected.
