Those visiting the centre for an appointment will also be asked some Covid screening questions before being allowed into their appointment.

We are doing our best to ensure the Carers Centres provide a safe and comfortable setting for anyone wishing to visit us. Our heightened level of hygiene measures remain in place, and we continue to use screens and observe social distancing of two meters where a screen is not available.
