The national guidance on the wearing of masks in primary care has changed.
This means that it is the responsibility of each practice to assess risks and decide if masks are appropriate.
As a practice we have decided that mask wearing is now a personal choice. This means that masks are no longer compulsory but both staff and patients may choose to continue to wear them.
We do however ask that you wear a mask to protect both our staff and more vulnerable patients if you have any cold or respiratory symptoms including – Cough, Shortness of breath, High temp
You may also be asked to wear one by a Dr if you are coming in for a triage appointment.
If you are seeing a member of our team and would prefer them to wear a mask when seen please let them know and we will be happy to put a mask on for you.
PLEASE NOTE – this is an ongoing situation and is continually under review. Please be aware that we may change this decision in the future and ask you to wear a mask again.
Musculoskeletal (MSK) Self-Care App
The MSK app has been developed to offer support and guidance on how to manage a Musculoskeletal (MSK) condition or injury. This can relate to any injury, disease or problem with muscles, bones or joints.
MSK is short for MusculoSKeletal. Any injury, disease or problem with our muscles, bones or joints is known as a Musculoskeletal disorder (MSD). A broad term covering common injuries such as sprained ankle and stiff neck through to conditions such as arthritis.
MSK problems are very common. Symptoms can include pain, stiffness swelling, muscle weakness, numbness or pins and needles. They can bother you at home, at work, or through activities and sport. There are over 400 medical conditions that can affect bones, muscles and joints. Getting quick access to good information helps people with muscle, back and joint problems get back to normal quicker.
Clinical guidance and exercise videos can be of benefit to anyone with an MSK condition/injury.
