Whilst COVID restrictions may have ended in many settings in England from Monday 19 July 2021, masks will remain a requirement for staff, patients and visitors on NHS sites and in NHS buildings.

That means NHS visitor guidance will stay in place across all health services including hospitals, GP practices, dental practices, optometrists and pharmacies to ensure patients and staff are protected.

If you are attending a Talking Therapies face to face appointment, you will be required to wear a face mask.
