Covid 19. Patient Information
Details of new procedures to protect against transmission of Covid-19
Dear patient, 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.
We ask all visitors to the clinic to maintain a two-metre distance from all other people in the clinic at all times. The only exception to this is with your practitioner who will let you know when it is appropriate to approach under two metre 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.
If you or someone you live with develops symptoms of Covid-19 by the time of the appointment, please contact us 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. Please ring the doorbell and you will be greeted at the door with a new face mask and asked to complete a short consent form.
Please use hand sanitizer immediately upon entering the clinic. Y 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 will give you a new mask 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.
