Covid-19 - Our Practice Information

Face coverings required in practice

Public health guidance remains in place suggesting individuals should continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces, where you may come into contact with people you do not normally meet.

With current case rates in South Yorkshire remaining high the Directors of Public Health for Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield are advising that well fitted and correctly worn face masks have made a difference to transmission rates through the course of the pandemic and are therefore encouraging people to continue to wear them.

You will still be required to wear a face covering when using NHS services. We ask that patients continue to wear face coverings when visiting our Practice. Hand sanitiser is also available for you to use whilst in practice, and we ask that you continue to maintain a safe distance from other patients whilst in the waiting room.

Please arrive at the Practice as close as possible to your appointment time. 


Thank you for your cooperation

Patients who have have had any Covid-19 vaccinations abroad can now book a face to face appointment at selected sites across the county to have their overseas vaccination records validated and recorded. This will enable patients to be invited for subsequent does for which they are eligible, and will also help patients to access the NHS Covid Pass.

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a cough
  • a high temperature
  • shortness of breath
  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu.


How to avoid catching or spreading the coronavirus:

  • wash your hands with soap and water often - do this for at least 20 seconds
  • always wash your hands when you get home or into work
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards
  • avoid close contact with people who are unwell
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
