Research Projects at Pickering Medical Practice

“Research is central to the NHS…
We need the evidence from research to deliver better care. Much of the care that we deliver at the moment is based on uncertainties or experience, but not on evidence.
We can only correct that with research.”

Recent NHS Guidance on the use of Facemasks

When you visit the Surgery you are no longer routinely required to wear a face mask unless it is your preference. HOWEVER if you have respiratory symptoms, or any symptoms which you think could be covid, please wear a face mask as you would have previously.
 
Staff are also not required to routinely wear a face mask unless it is their preference. However, if they are working with untriaged patients attending with respiratory symptoms, or any symptoms that could be Covid, they will wear a mask and PPE as previously.
 
This guidance will be reviewed and adjusted if there is a rise in covid cases.
