When visiting Birchwood Medical Practice, we now request that any patients over the age of 5 wear protection over their mouth and nose. This could be a mask you have bought or a homemade face covering or a scarf. This is to reduce your infection risk and to protect other patients and our staff. Our clinicians will be wearing appropriate PPE for all face to face appointments. We still advise to only come into the surgery if absolutely necessary and to contact us by telephone for any enquiries. We thank you for your co-operation.
