Face masks when using NHS services

All patients and visitors to NHS services must wear a face covering at all times.  This includes hospitals, community clinics and GP services.  Evidence has confirmed that face coverings can help reduce the risk of transmission if you are suffering from coronavirus, but not showing symptoms.
The government has set out advice for people on how to make their own face coverings easily at home, using scarves or other textile items. These face coverings should cover the mouth and nose, whilst allowing the wearer to breathe comfortably and can be as simple as a scarf or bandanna that ties behind the head to give a snug fit. 

Please wash your hands or use hand sanitiser before putting on a face covering and after taking it off. Please avoid touching your face covering whilst wearing it to avoid transmission of the virus.  

If you attend an appointment without a face covering, you will be provided with a face mask in an emergency. 

Face coverings when using public transport

In line with Government rules, face coverings must be worn for the full duration of journeys on the public transport network.

Your face covering must cover both your mouth and nose.

Customers using taxis and private hire vehicles should also use a face covering for the duration of all journeys.

The latest scientific advice says that face coverings can help reduce the chance of infecting others.

A small number of customers are not required by law to wear face coverings. You can find more information about this, and print your own exemption card, by visiting the TFL website here

Black lives matter

 

Statement from Lambeth Clinical Cabinet and GP Clinical Commissioners about Black Lives Matter

 

The death of George Floyd and the worldwide response to his killing have served as a reminder of the deep inequalities that remain in our society

 

We, the Lambeth Clinical Cabinet of GPs along with the GP Commissioning leads acknowledge the disproportionate impact of these inequalities on people of Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds.

 

We also acknowledge the negative health and social impact that Covid-19 has had on BAME communities both directly and also in highlighting further the existing inequalities in our society.

 

In Lambeth, general practice is provided by a diverse workforce of whom we are justifiably proud.  We have risen to the challenge of the pandemic and have been agile and swift in our responses. This has ensured that general practice has remained open all the way through the lockdown.

 

We aspire to look after our staff well. We will ensure that we fully assess the risks to our staff and take all necessary steps to minimise those risks. We also aspire to look after the wellbeing of all our staff.

 

General practice is for everyone. We are here to advocate for the health of our patients. We will ensure that we increase our efforts to tackle the health inequalities suffered by BAME communities but also others that are disadvantaged in our society today.

 

We pledge that we will work collaboratively with our partner organisations in health and social care to improve the health and wellbeing of patients registered with practices in Lambeth
