Following the government's announcement to remove Covid safety measures on July 19th, we have taken the decision to review our Covid-safety policies. In light of the large rise in cases and the associated risks, we have taken the decision, after reviewing as much of the latest research from Independent Sage and Sage scientists, to maintain social distancing, the use of masks and hand sanitiser. We will also be conducting our consultations in well ventilated spaces: preferably outdoors. These policies will be kept under review, and it may be the case that we move to online-only consultations. It is with great sadness that we feel this has become necessary to keep us all safe.
