Covid Secure Procedures

COVID 19 Procedures

As you will be aware all public places have created new rules for visitors to follow for their safety and the safety of others. Please read through before attending the clinic. If you have any further questions, please let me know.

Social distancing

We will continue to maintain a two metre distance from each other when visiting the clinic and through the consultation.

The only exception to this is with your practitioner who will let you know when it is appropriate to approach under two metres and for how long.

For social distancing reasons, unless you require assistance for specific support and care needs, we ask you to come alone for the appointment where possible unless a chaperone, parent or carer is required. Please leave accessory items (bags and coats) in the car, or travel with as little as possible.

Before arrival

If you or someone you live with develops symptoms of Covid-19 by the time of the appointment, please contact me before attending the clinic.

Entering the clinic

We have spaced out patient arrivals and departures so that all visitors to the clinic can remain socially distanced.
• You will receive a specific time for arrival. We would be grateful if you could enter the clinic at exactly that time.

Handwashing

Please wash your hands immediately upon entering the clinic. You will be directed to the appropriate facilities. There will be a poster nearby to demonstrate handwashing techniques recommended by the NHS. Please also wash your hands before leaving the clinic.

Face mask and respiratory hygiene

We are recommending that patients wear ordinary surgical masks to the clinic. You may bring your own or ask your practitioner to provide one for you upon entering the clinic.
If you need to sneeze or cough while in the clinic, please do so into a disposable tissue and throw it away immediately. Please wash your hands immediately after doing so.

We are also encouraging cashless payment where possible.
