Steps To Keep You safe
There are some things that we would like you to be aware of when attending face to face treatment with us. We have outlined them for you below.
1. Our clinicians will be wearing PPE (personal protective equipment) during your appointment with us. This will include an apron, mask, gloves and in some circumstances a visor.
2. You will cancel your appointment if you develop a dry persistent cough, temperature above 37.5°C. sudden loss or change to smell and taste, and if you feel generally unwell.
3. You are required to wear a face mask covering your nose and mouth at all times during your appointment. If there is a medical reason that may prevent you from wearing a mask please let us know prior to the day of your appointment.
4. You are to use the provided alcohol hand-gel on immediate entrance to the clinic. Please try to refrain from using our toilet/bathroom.
5. Please do not arrive earlier than 5 minutes ahead of your appointment time and please be aware if you are late for your appointment we will only be able to use your designated appointment slot due to strict traffic control in the clinic.
6. Please attend your appointment on your own if possible. We understand there may be times when this is not possible if you require a chaperone or assistance. If this is the case please ensure the person attending your appointment has passed the Covid-19 screening questions above.
